1989 Chev K1500 Pass Door Issues

Hi,
89 Chev Silverado K1500 290,000km 5.7L Stepside Reg Cab
My ole' 89 Chev has passenger door problems. It won't close properly unless you lift it while closing. I just changed the hinge pins and bushings and
the problem is still there. Could the whole door be out of align? Or could the latch be malfunctioning?

Problem solved.
I put a jack under the end of the door and lifted it enough now that the door shuts fine.

Bad thing about that design is that hinges are bonded on and while you replaced pins the hinges themselves could be worn. You may need to consult a body shop to have hinges rehung.
