I hate to say it, but you are dealing with the same problem that thousands of S10 truck owners go through. The pins wear out and the door sags. As far as the hinge's attachment to the truck body, it should have been welded from the factory. If it is coming off, there is nothing you can do but have it re-welded to the body. However, I will say that 1200 dollars sounds extremely high to do the work. (But I don't know where you are).
Don't expect a recall from GM regarding this problem. It hasn't happened since they started making the S10 and the problem was always there.
