Door won’t close properly but out of room to adjust strike plate?


My garage door won’t close properly because the strike plate isn’t centered. I basically need to lift the door from the handle so that it latches when it closes. You can see from this picture how the center is slightly off: I took off the strike plate and noticed that there is not much room to make a hole underneath the original position: The door also has a spring hinge at the top and bottom: Is the way to tighten this via the small screw near the bottom?What are my options here? Right now, I’ve just removed the strike plate for the time being so that I can actually close the door without lifting it each time. via /r/DIY
