Door alignment advice needed

Can anybody point me toward a good article on getting a drivers side door to align properly? Mine is sagging a little bit toward the rear (no smart-ass jokes, please) making the "lines" of the car not flow as well as the locking mechanism not to work easily. Either a link to an article on the subject or someone with experience they're willing to share would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advnace.

Grover,

I just reinstalled both my doors and alignment was a bit tricky. If its sagging @ the rear you'll want to loosen the mounting bolts at the bottom of the door first. Leave at least one bolt fairly snug so that the door remains in its original position. Try lifting from the bottom of the door at the rear just slightly. Any movement there is magnified at the mounting point. It is helpful to mark all mounting locations before loosening any of the bolts.

It really helps to have a partner for this so that they can position the door while you loosen/tighten.

Remember that as the rear of the door goes up, the upper front edge may go in. Hopefully you can get it correct w/o having to adjust the upper mounts. Good luck!

Chris

Karl. Sorry if I'm being dense, but I'm not sure exactly what to be looking at on your site. Is there a particular section which talks about door alignment. Thanks.
