Sagging Double Garage Door.


Hi there.
My garage door is catching on the edge when closing/opening.
I assume if I fix the sag it will be okay.
Can I lower the attachment arm a bit?
I assume this will give it stability.

Have a look at the pictures, as you can see it's all over the place like a mad woman's s**t,
If you look closely the *gasp* rivets are popping out.

But the main question I want to know is if I can lower the arm a bit.

cheers

I might shave or bevel that top jamb a bit, if that's where it's catching. Got a hand plane?
