Rear Door Hindges???

So i bought the aftermarket rear door hinges in black from QuadT and they were working pretty good. I do not have any major cons about them with only one exception.

When i adjust them to properly close and open since they are NOT counter sink screw they get unaligned and move down. Mostly due to the rear tire i am sure of this.

So i went out and purchased from the dealer the OEM door hinges which look 10x stronger. The 2 body side bolts are counter sink, and the 2 door side bolts are not. Is that right or wrong?

I am assuming the door side bolts are not counter sink due to the fact that i have to adjust them. Can someone fill me in on if this is correct?

Another reason why i am asking is that they sent me 8 counter sink screws, so i am kinda like wtf!!! Did they just forget to drill the other 4 holes?

I am way ahead of you on that. But then if i counter sink them i do not think that i will be able to adjust them. Hence why i am asking if anyone has a 92-95. They could look to see if they are, or are not counter sink so as to not waste my time making them ya know?

I finally got them installed on Sat when we weren't to busy here at work. They work amazingly well and the door closes perfectly. You can def feel the difference from the "kentrol" ones to these Dealer OEM ones. SOLID.
