[DML] Door Strut Mounting Posts


I noticed today getting out of my car that the lower mounting post (one on the body) for the door struts is not completely perpendicular to the body.  It looks like over the years with the doors being closed 99% of the time all of that force has bent the mounting plate for this post outward.  Is this right?  Or were these posts always a little bent out even when new.  The passenger side is the same as well.  I've taken the post out to examine it and it is not bent at all, so it must be whatever mounting plate this thing screws into.  Is there anything I can do to reinforce this post?  It looks like whatever you do you have to remove the headliner to access it, which I will be doing sometime in the near future to redo the headliners.  Is there anything I can do "while I'm in there"?
