Yup ,youll need a spring tool..I find its easier to leave the door on the car ,remove one hinge (as a unit) and repair it on the bench ,put it back on then remove the other..marking the location speeds things up.I use a floor jack too..If you need to drill it ,use a drill press or else the holes might not be in line,
TIP: Before you remove a hinge ,mark its location by drawing a line around the outside edge(both halves)also with some masking tape mark the top door side and top jamb side ...so you dont get one side upside down
