I recently found out that my 2-level home is built on 24 inch centers as oppose to 16 inch. As a result, I am noticing a few cracks in the wall, in addition to a slight decline of the floor in the foyer area. Also several closet doors are not closing properly and the front door (glass) tends to stick. I did call around to a couple of foundation repair companies and the estimates I was given were all over $6000. Is there any other way I can get this issue resolve cheaper.

I don't understand the question. Are your problems related to the 24"oc stud spacing or are they related to the foundation settling? Or, are you talking about 24"oc rebar placement in the foundation?

If doors are sticking, I'd tend to attribute that to foundation settlement issues, not stud spacing.

There's no such thing as inexpensive foundation repairs, unfortunately. Piering, tiebacks, etc....They all cost a few thousand or more.
