Default 2001 Silverado rear door adjustment?

My 2001 Silverado ext. cab rear door gap off. It is "sagging" which doesn't allow the front door to seal. The gap between frt and rear door at the top is o and 3/8 to 1/2 at the bottom. The door gap on frt door is uniform between fender and door. The hinges are tight, welds are good. Any advise would be helpful.

Thanks

sounds like someone swung from it while open. I suggest you bend it back. if its the lower hindge caved in use a 2x4 in the door jam and just lift the door as it closes into the jam. if its a bent upper hindge then you might want to use a floor jack to lift the door with a baord spreading the load at the bottom of the door casing. just lift a bit at a time just off the jam so as you don't twist the post its mounted to.
