    Anyone else have their hinges break on their doors I inspected my door on the weekend and found 3 hinges with buckled and torn metal. Inspecting the other hinges I see some with small fractures too.

    Yes, but I bet yours were installed like mine and the mouth-breather only chose mounting bolts in the centre of the hinges and not the sides which stresses the shit out of them in the lifted door position.
    I think I replaced 2 or 3 this summer, but they still tolerated that abuse for 5+ years.

    This is what it looked like before I replaced one of them 9A2AE5AF-9E7E-4BB5-ABE2-8B8FB190CF66.jpg

    I also noticed that instead of hinge 1 being used in position 1 it
    Was hinge 2 then hinge 2 then hinge 3 where as I thought it would be hinge 1-2-3 as per the photos on the back of my hinge install diagram.

    Right, but you can see those others were there for the taking, yet not selected. That would solve 99% of these particular issues.

    2/4 center holes are all that is required. Extra holes are there if the centers are stripped out or you've got a super heavy door (think 32'+)

    I had my hinges bend and buckle like that and even my door fall down a few times and it all turned out to be because it wasn't aligned properly and was placing a weird twisting stress on the door/hinges. My guess is that happened after the garage had settled for a few years as it was a new build. I had a friendly fella come over to square it up and adjust everything back properly and I haven't had any issues since. The fear is always there though when you see it jerk a little bit or squeak when it didn't squeak before. But I would look at alignment of your doors for sure.
