Question Door hinge replacement

So my sister in law asked me to fix her 1999 cirrus. the door was sagging so i went out searching for door pins and bushings. turns out you cant buy pins and bushings you have to buy the entire hinge and to top that off you cant find them at any parts store or dealerships. I went online and found an aftermarket mopar site that had the hinges and ordered both for 100$. Once i got them i went out and unbolted the door and unhooked the electrical. i pulled off the top hinge and the bolt farthest from the front had rotted in half the 2 closest to the front came right out no issues. I noticed the bottom hinges are identical except that the new hinge only has 2 bolt holes one towards the front of the car one to the rear otherwise totally identical. so i mounted both new hinges and screwed the door back on to find that when closed the front edge of the door sticks out about 1 1/2-2'' from the fender and wont close. I dont have the hinges upside down and the top isnt on the bottom and vise versa. so what im asking is what am i doing wrong here. this should have been a simple part swap not a 2 day nightmare.
any help is greatly appreciated. if you need pictures let me know ill try and get them on asap
