[xj40] 88 XJ6 - Sagging drivers door problem

Hello all,
Recently i’ve encountered a new problem which kind of has me
stumped. Everytime I go to close my drivers door from eiher inside
or out I need to almost lift up the dor a bit and put more pressure
onto the door when closing.

I looked at the door catch and for some reason it’s no longer lined
up with the catch. Its off about 1/8’’ which makes me have to lift
the door a hair into place. All the bolts are tight and the striker
bolt really can’t be adjusted height wise. The door, bodywise is in
the right place - doen’t look low, all the body lines line up. The
catch mounted in the door (3 torx bits) doesn’t appear to have any
height adjustment either.

Any suggestions. Door handles are all fine, none broken, fixed that
one a long ime ago.
