73 front door gap

I have a 73, the front door gap is 1/2" on top 1/8" on bottom on the front of door. the back of door is aligned nicely. I have opened the door a little bit and lifted up and down, and their is no play in door hinge at all. so I was told to loosen 3 bolts on each side at the front of the frame where the bumper bolt to the frame and lift up on those brackets to align the front end to the door and tighten the bolts before lowering the jack so I did just that as lifting on the front brackets the door gap closed nicely to about 3/16" a lot better then a 1/2" looked real nice tighten up the bolts lowered the jack and guess what, the 1/2" gap came right back. tried a couple of times same thing how can this be.... and what do I do to correct.
