I think the hinges on my left door are going bad. The door does not close all the way unless i lift up on the door. I can also slam it and it will close all the way. Is my assumption correct?

Yes your assumption is correct. More than likely it's your bottom hinge that has failed. The upper hinge might be in good condition still as it is not a "load bearing" hinge.

See http://www.spinningwheels-sc.com/ind...PROD&ProdID=39 for the hinge Kit and:

http://www.mn12performance.com/mn12parts/doorhinge/door-hinge-kit.htm For the How-To.

Hopefully this link will stay active since MN12Performace has closed. They farmed out their inventory/supplier list to http://www.supercoupeperformance.com/ and http://www.spinningwheels-sc.com/

I recently rebuilt my lower hinge and found a better way than their how-to suggests. It is a good start, however it needs to be improved. I have pictures and more info if anyone's interested.
