That's the way mine was done. So yes it can be done one side at a time.

Hopefully, I'm not too late for my 0.02

I did mine this way too but loosened them up too much, so when I lifted one side; the body moved a bit, about 1/4", creating a challenge to realign.  Had to go purchase those aligning bars (it's fairly cheap) and enlist 5 friends to help out; so add 2 cases of beers and some pizza to the total.

Steph.
