Most cars that have bolt on hinges don't really use cut slots, but the holes the bolt goes in on the hinge is drilled a little big so you do have wiggle room. It doesn't take much of an adjustment at the hinge to really change the far end of the door.

Honestly, the best adjustments I have ever done are purely muscle.

the easiest way to fix it in my opinion is to take off the fender and close the door and then loosen and re tighten the bolts on the body side. the holes are slightly bigger than the bolt

It probably actually needs new bushing, bending or adjusting it will only work for a while, but it will keep sagging until you replace the bushings. They're pretty cheap, like $10-$15.

The funny thing is that there is no play at all in the door. It must have just gotten tweaked somehow. Thanks for the replies guys.

Found mine on Scamazon. They are a Dor-Man product. I don't have the number handy because I am at work and the 'Terra is at home, over an hour away.
