Hard top leak

Has anyone had a problem with their hard top leaking water? I have an 89 yj and the hardtop seems to sit a little high around the top of the doors. Right above the door there is a gap and the seals do not fill it, when it rains it gets in the jeep and settles on the floor. Is this a common problem with hard tops? are my doors sagging? do I need new door seals ? I need help. any ideas would help...

I have a 93 soft top and I really dont know much about jeeps (only had one a few months) but my passenger door does this same thing you are talking about, but I dont know for sure if water gets in mine or not.

They might be sagging
Take your door off and use some washers on hinges
to raise it up as long as it latches

Its easyer to put weather striping
on the bottom on door if there is a gap
Thats what I would try first

Did you put on hard top?
make sure that its down all the way
in back some people put alot of weather striping
around the back
Make sure its seated on windshield

"locked and loaded"
