Default Door Not Closing Fully

My Passenger Door is not closing properly, but it IS fully latching. It seems to be out of line for some reason.....got any fixes for that? It'* real irritating going over a bump hearing the door smashing around the frame.

err I had a similar problem with my '79 monte...I haven't really looked at the hinges on our cars but if they're the same then the problem might be the bushings on the hinges. They're like $8. You can check this (at least in '79) by opening the door and pushing up on the door at the latch side of things. You shouldn't be able to move it.

There are bolts that adjust the latch assembly in the door. Check to see if they are adjusted correctly.
