if you push out on the tops of the door while driving, does the noise get louder?

if so, roll the window down and see if you can bend the top of the door frame back to shape to get a better seal

It'* unlikely that you'll have enough force to bend the door frame.

Something is likely out of adjustment. Can you snap some pics for us?

Moving to 92-99...

Had a lot of wind noise with my 93 SSE. The rubber weather stripping that goes around the door jamb (NOT the door) had shrunk over time and ther was a gap at each corner of the jamb that allowed air to come into the car. The two ends of weather stripping meet at the bottom of the door jamb. I pulled the stripping away from the jamb (starting at the bottom) and continued pulling until I got to the top corners. Mine was not glued. I then started pushing it back into the corners and worked my way down the jamb to the bottom middle. I actually have about an inch gap at the bottom where the stripping does not meet but it eliminated all the wind noise. I did all four doors in about 20 minutes and now its like having a new car!
