bi fold door problem

Im installing bi fold doors,everything is in but im having problems when the 2 doors close .One is sticking out about 1\2 " more than the other at the bottom.I took off the doors to paint them and im thinking that thats the problem because when i put the hinges back on the 1/2 " screws wernt strong.So i changes them for longer screws,but stil got the problem.

Did you install the two little "Z" pieces of metal? They make the two doors fit perfectly.
