1 1/4 difference over 5 feet is a lot!! My guess is the floor is fairly level but the top has somehow shifted or jams have racked. Are you looking to repair the current doors or put in complete new ones?
If getting new doors I think the easiest is to get prehung, double opening doors. The big box stores should carry them in that width. remove all existing trim and jams, then install new pre-hung paying particular attention to level/plumb.
