Wanna buy: 94-96 driver's door hinges, blend door box

When I open the driver's door, it sags enough, that I can't close it without lifting it so the latch lines up with the striker.

When I twist the temp knob fully clockwise, despite using a 180 tstat, restoring the heatercore's foam seal gasket, and backflushing the cooling system thoroughly, air achieves warmth, but not quite heat.

For whatever it's worth, when I step on the gas even a little bit I can hear 'something' move around in there, and then when I lift I hear 'something', and then when I brake I hear 'something'.

With no insult intended, I think I'll use a hinge rebuild kit.
