Quite often you can open the door and loosen off the bottom hinge bolts where they attach to the door and insert chassis alignment shims between the door and the hinge plate. This will have the effect of raising the raising the back of the door up a little. You'll have to have someone lift the door while you insert the shims after you have loosened the bolts. Any shop that does wheel alignments should be willing to give you a couple small chassis shims.

Driver side door loose

WEll, usually not a bushing, but there is often lots of wear at the pivot pin. Usually best to replace entire hinge, as teh tolerance goes off when the pin wears...

Driver door not properly mountain or perhaps needs seals what is it?

Does the door have trouble closing? Check the door hinges first. It may not be aligned properly. You may want to have the door evaluated at your local body shop. Good luck!!!

Door sag

Hello, you need to replace the hinge pins and bushings. Just take a hammer and knock the hinge pins out and put the new pins with bushings in the hole and tap it into place. Some vehicles have a locking ring on the bottom of the hinge pin just knock it off with your hammer and a screwdriver. They don't have to be replaced but, if you want the dealer sells those too. Good luck and any questions please ask.
