if the door needs to be lifted when closing for a smooth close then the striker needs to be adjusted. There has already been enough movement to justify it, especially now. You could also go ahead and make your adjustment and slowly close it over and over again looking closely at the top of the door to quarter to see if it's moving on you, binding, or needing to be shimmed, etc-etc.
