I wasn't aware there was a way to adjust the door's height like that. Maybe something just needs to be tightened?

But what can you do if back doors moved forward maybe 0.3 inches. Is there is a way to move em back?

What do you mean "moved forward"? Like the doors have slowly crept towards the front of the car (likfe from breaking heavily or something)?

I think if these are problems that can't be solved by simply checking your bolts and tightening stuff, then perhaps the brackets that hold the doors on are weak or giving, and need to be replaced. Ask a dealership what they have to say.

I tried to adjust my solara's door myself and i think i screwed it up...the darn bugger needed re-adjustment every 2-3 months. Then i got fed up and went to a body shop. $20 bucks later, i've been very happy ever since. Its not like my solara was in an accident, its just the drivers door wasn't flush with the car.

Great questions. My driver's door is down just enough that I have to just about slam it for it to close. If it am not stern with it, the door just doesn't seal. Thanks you the thread.
So I just tighten the hinge bolts?

You could try to tighten it, or maybe put small washers under the bottom hinge?
