How to keep the doors from rattling?

Ok so a week ago we bought two F250's, a 2005 and a 2006 (hers). Both harley editions, CCSB 4x4 PSD, lifted, straight piped. Her drivers door rattles when we hit bumps, sounds to me like it's by the latch. Mine does a little but hers is worse. How do you fix that? Can the latch or striker be adjusted to get rid of that? She's missing one of the little rubber bumpers on the door, about the height of the bottom of the window when rolled all the way up.

Loosten them just a little and then tap them in and try. Repeat as neccesary. Also check and see if they are worn out and may need replaced.

Are you sure it is the latches or is it the rubber weather stripping. Below is a link about reviving worn door seals.

Doing the door seal mod on the EX!!! - Ford Truck Enthusiasts Forums

If you search, you will see many other threads like this. I have not done this yet, as a couple of mine are torn beyone repair and need to be replaced first. I will be doing this to the others though. Make sure you use the latex tubing.
