The hinges were fully removed to be cleaned up. Ideally would have loved to get the powdercoated, but didn't happen. Also, I don't know how I'd be able to install the spring on the top hinge without it being in a vice. Take a good deal of force to compress it. I will try to do the other side without removing the door. I can't imagine having enough space to do it though. Will give it a try though on the other door.

I had read about the hinges bending and makes sense. Also seen bending tools to help bend it back into shape. I'll try adjusting the door again and then try the bending if no change.

Lots of good information from everyone, thanks!
