It sags when opened? You need to have someone pick up on the rear of the door when opened while you observe the hinges. Loose pins are noticeable. Also look for weakness in the hinge pillar and latch pillar or door frame for that matter. The hinge pin holes may be elongated and/or out-of-round,

Well, it might be easier if you are prepared to wrestle a heavy door. A special lift was (is) available to use with a floor jack. Other than that, you might be able to support the door with a floor jack while R&R the hinges. Just don't let it get away from you ... $$$ ...

Check you SHOP MANUAL ford adjusting/shimming the hinges if necessary.
