Sagging Doors

Has anyone else had the problem with their doors sagging, i think that my lower door hinge is dead but before i went and forked out $30 a door for the hinges i would rather try to fix it a Free way being that i am a poor student and all. I wanted to know if anyone else has had this problem and if so how did they fix it?

This problem has plagued almost all MN12 owners, and mine is starting up as well. Unfortunately, I don't think there's a "FREE" solution, but I could be wrong.

Body shop installed new pins and bushings in the hinges of my passenger door for about 50.00 per side. I thought it was a great deal.

Haha, I cheaped out and put a washer between the door and the hinge on the lowest bolt on the bottom hinge. I just jacked up the door a little (wood in place) and loosened the top bolt of the bottom hinge and removed the bottom bolt in order to squeeze a washer in there. Reinstalled the bottom bolt and tightened both bolts. No more sag, door closes with a nice light push.
