    Hi,

    Anyone know how to adjust the doors as mine have sagged a bit over the years.

    Oh and please no cowboys saying "Stick a jack under door and lift"

    Thanks in advance!

    i keep meaning to look into this myself. I reckon the hinges will need shims.

    it depends on where the sag has occurred tbh more often than no the chrome hinge on the pillar just needs lifting but if not that its a case of adjusting the hinges, that being said most body shops will just do it primitivley though maybe not usng a jack

    Second this kufu! anyone able to shed some light my doors have sat down a little from what i have noticed. I also have creaking sounds from them over rough roads.

    Iv used Krytox (Du Pont) lubricant on the seals it does help but doesnt last long before the noise comes back. Certain its because the doors need realigning and then lubricating.
