help w/ inset cabinet doors -- too inset?

Made my first set of inset doors. Used Euro-style full-inset hinges from Home Depot ("Liberty" brand) rather than Blum.
The spring is very tight - so tight that the doors a pulled past their 90* closure, and bow in at the center. I've added a center stop at the top, which solved that problem -- at the top, but the bottom ones are still dished inward slightly by the spring tension. (Posted simple diagram on ABPW)
Before I add another stop at the bottom to hold them at a tight 90* - I'd thought I'd ask the wreck.
Am I missing something with inset doors? Is there away to adjust the tension on Euro Hinges so they don't tug the doors closed and past 90*? Might this just be an attribute of BORG brand hinges? Or is it normal operating procedure to place door stops at the top and bottom - or a rail in the center of the cabinet?

Inset doors need a stop, at least on the free edge.

Try using unsprung Euro hinges and some magnetic touch latches this should solve your problem.
