    Rattling doors.

    My doors rattle and I'm not sure I want to start adjusting them before asking. My Rubber seals are good but the hasp are I think suppose to be coated with rubber which mine aren't. Is this true? If so I"ll buy new. The hinges don't seem to need new bushings.

    After a victory lap around the neighborhood with no rattles I'm happy, thanks again.

    On those door strikers, I replaced mine '86 with the '87 version which took a little manipulation, but the '87 on should have a rubber coating on them which when closing the door gives a much sweeter car door sound instead of the tin sounding metal on metal sound. Though the mating end that is on the '87 door is also a delrin plastic material, it would not replace the one on the '86 and older models. So getting the 100% effect is decrease by a small amount. But, you can definitely hear the difference when closing the doors on the 1st generation trucks.
