Question about 1997 Dodge Dakota
Driver door sag, repair. How do you adjust the hinge so the door is level? It slams and rises when I shut it. Thanks
Likely nothing to adjust.
With the door open, see if the door can be lifted up and down while looking at the hinges. If there is play, the door hinge pins/bushings are worn out, and on some vehicles, the hinges are not serviceable, and replacement will be needed. G/L

Matchmark the hinge-to-body and hinge-to-door locations. Support the door either on jackstands or have somebody hold it for you.
Remove the lower hinge-to-door bolts.
Remove the upper hinge-to-door bolts and lift the door off the hinges.

If the hinges are being replaced, remove them from the door pillar.
Install the door and hinges with the bolts finger-tight.
