    on my truck since i have owned it the back of the hood near the windshield is raised up an inch or so. It opens and closes fine but what do you have to do to get it adjusted back like it should be? Had a ford that is the same way and replacing the hindges on it did not do any good. What do I need to do? I spray oil and such on the hindges regular when i grease the column shift stuff but it has not helped.

    adjust rear of hinge assemblies downwards if that doesnt do it then the hinges are worn out

    oil the replacement ones often to prevent it from happening again
