Default Door hinges

I just replaced the lower driver'* side door hinge on my 93 Bonneville. The bushing wore out on the old one. Anyway, I can't get the door lined up right. I didn't touch the upper hinge, 'cause I thought it would make realigning the door harder. Does anyone know a trick to get them aligned?

Thanks

Well, I found out how to align the door and I thought I would share it with the group. Open the door completely and make sure all the hinge bolts are loose (only on the hinge that was disturbed). Take a floor jack, using a block of wood to protect the bottom of the door, jack up the door. Stop when it doesn't seem the door will move any more. Tighten the bolts up. Lower the jack. At this point I found the door to be almost perfect. By slightly loosening the bolts on the body side of the hinge and shaking the door, I was able to get it perfect. I tightened the bolts back up.

I will be replacing my driver side door. I am sure it will be a blast. Sounds like a day worth of messen.

Well thinking about it but I am looking for a green hood. I also plan on alot of body work heat extractor hood scoop, Frenched antenna, and shaved door handles; so I can wait but the door is an easy fix. lol remember the Harley scar is not mine. Still it gets me respect when people think about cutting me off. If you notice in the registry my picture is from the side. Actually all pictures of my car are from the side. I will have it all worked out but I first want to do this store deal.
