doors are loose

Does anyone know if its possible to adjust the door latch? When I am driving down a bumpy road my door rattles on the latch, it usually does this when I am going over washboards or driving downhill. The drivers door is the worst but the passenger side rattles also. I just removed the latch from the door jamb hoping that I could just slide the latch in toward the interior but there is no adjustment. If anyone else has had this problem and has figured out a way to fix this please let me know!!!

Thanks!

This is how I fixed my doors on my 95. Buy some 1/2" caulk backing from home depot, its in the weather stripping area. I removed the door seals from my truck, layed them flat on the ground, used a (wire puller) not sure of the actual name and pulled the foam backing all the way through, like wire through conduit. Foam is soft so use alot of wd40. Two people makes the job alot easier. If foam breaks before it makes it through, just do the same from otherside and they will meet in the middle. Good luck
