Question about 1999 GMC Suburban
This problem appears to be a "wear" situation. Can the latching stud be adjusted so the door does not rub on it?
Jetfixr is right on this one. Its the top hinge bushings.

The bushing on your hinge (usually upper) are notorious for wearing out, that is the reason your door is sagging and causing and interferance with your latching post. Adjusting the post is merely masking the problem. You can buy replacement bushing and a spring compressor pretty cheap. I would go for the real problem.

Yes, it probably either has screw head dead center or one on each side of latch striker. Loosen, tap for movement, then re-tighten. Don't back it off too much, just enough for it to move.
