RE: [DML] Door Alignment Issues

You may also have to adjust the pins fore and aft. Some times the pins are
adjusted too far forward and actually are hitting the door or are too far
rearward and the end of the pin is hitting the latch. 

Check the position of where the latch is striking the latch by putting some
grease on the pin and closing the door. You should be able to see where the
latch hit the pin in the grease when you open the door up.

My passenger door pin was too far forward and hit the door. I had to drill
through the plastic shell to the metal door pillar to get the adjusting pin
back far enough.

I'm in the process of aligning my striker pins so the doors close easier
without as much "clunking".  So far I have adjusted the drivers side well, I
can close the door with one finger and it latches front and back and locks
fine.  The passenger side is a slightly different story however, I have been
adjusting the pins and cannot seem to get it to close as well as the drivers
side.  It will close but takes some more force and you can definitely feel
the pins bumping the door as it closes.  I have tried removing one pin so I
only have to align one at a time, but the pins just will not move far enough
for a proper alignment.  Does it sound like I have to adjust my hinges?
That seems like it would have a huge impact on the way the way the door
closes so I have held off on that.  Let me know what you think.
