One of two right ways to repair the problem is to replace the hinge. But the hinge is No Longer Available. The other right way is to have the hinge machined for bushings. The problem there is that the hinge will have to be totally removed, and a willing machinist located.
In the past, Inland Andy has recommended re-orienting the door on the hinge. While this fix will make the door look right again, there is much room for error if not done properly.
I had the same problem four years ago and fixed it with no drilling
FWIW, that was roughly 10,000 miles ago, and the solution has proven to be effective with no consequences.
