Default Front doors dragging on fenders

Here'* one that I haven't seen on the forum before. When I first got my 2003, the passenger side front door would rub on the fender right at the bottom when you opened the door and make a loud noise like a rusted up door hinge. The body lines look straight (as in not wrecked in the past) so I just gave the lower part of the fender a small pry with a plastic bar and everything was fine.

Eventually the passenger side started again, and now the drivers door is doing it too. Anyone got any advice on this one? Nothing pushed the front of the car in, so I have no idea why it would be doing this.

Check the hinges in the doors. They may need a small adjustment.
