Perhaps some pics of the issues might help.
Who installed the door?

What do you mean by "...tilt down on the latch side...?" What plane of the door is out of plumb/level? The face, the side? Both?

From the sound os it the door has sagged. You'll have to remove the hinge side screws from the outside frame (leave the very top one in as it will become the pivot point) and the jamb screws, then grab the bottom of the hinge side frame and push it over towards the latch side frame. That will square up the door. Predrill the new holes in the hinge side z-bar and screw it down.
