Default 122s door sag

The doors on my 122s sag a bit. How difficult would it be to find new hinges to replace them? Which wears first in these, the hinge body or the pin? Should I just try to adjust the doors to deal with the sag?

If needed, new hinges are still available.

I guess I will figure it out when I get them apart.

Any tips on getting the phillips head screws out? I have had trouble with those on different cars in the past.

I wonder if anyone has tried reaming them out and installing bushings similar to what some American cars do.

User an impact driver with the proper sized bit to remove the Phillips head screws.

This kit looks like it has the right bit.

I've had best results when using it with a heavier hammer requiring less swing. Less tendency for the impact driver to bounce around, and less chance to deform the underlying sheet metal.
