I noticed I have one door hinge roller with a severe flat spot, didn’t notice til I had already adjusted door. Is it possible to leave door latched and just removed the bottom hinge to repair without removing the whole door?
Also I am converting over to power steering with a factory kit from Chockostang, I need to place whole car on jack stands to address other underbody also, where should I place jack stands under front to install power steering parts that won’t be in the way? The rear obviously will be under the axle, just questioning the front. Engine is installed if that matters. This is a 67 coupe.....thanks

Not sure about your first question about your door.
But for the second one about how to jack up yer Stang to work on the front end, this is the way I do mine.
On the front I use a floor jack to jack up the car using the Cross Member.
I put Jack Stands with wooden 2 x 4's under the "roll-formed" Frame Rails up front, as long as the Rails are structurally sound.
And as is usual, the Rear Axel is placed on Jackstands.

AllenHopp, thanks for the reply. I did do the door hinges one at a time while leaving the door latched and attached and it worked fine.
