Does the wing spar actually bend that much just from loading? - or are your
attach bolts loose? I never see any change in the clearance between the
door & the wing, regardless of the load.

Mine does too. At my last annual my A&P wanted to change the hinge but I
told him the door fit to well, the hinge was not loose, just missing the
bottom plate and the wing scrape is only when loaded to within 100 lbs of
gross. I also didn't want to have to repaint a good paint job.
