Back door hinge problem closing door

I am having trouble closing my back door. My oversized tire has slowly weighed the back door down and it doesn't close anymore without lifting the whole thing up. I ordered new hinge bushings, but they are for the front door. I tried using a pin and hammer to pop the door pins out, but there is no movement. Just looking for help, or has someone popped the pins before, what was used?
Any help would be appreciated, or ideas...

For the rear hinges you have to replace the whole hinge

Loosen the torx bolts on the actual tailgate and you can adjust it
