I am not sure how the doors compare between yours and my 94 two door but likely they are both large and heavy and prone to the problem. I just loosened the bolts on the bottom hinge and put in an aluminum shimm cleared it right up.

Its pretty much a two person job, 1 to work, 1 to steady the door. The pins must be driven out of the hinge. Beware of the return spring wedged in the hinge there is a special tool to compress and remove it. Other than that once the pins are out the bushings press into the hinge assembly
