If you have to slam your hatch a dozen times to get it to close or if it doesn't close at all this could be the part you need. They tend to get old crack and fall off. If you look at the piece that recieves ...

    My hatch wouldn't close properly and my doors didn't close all the way so it looked sloppy. I THOUGHT I had to change the locking mechanism for the hatch so that what I was looking for when I saw this and read the reviews. Now everything closes and stays tight. If you're missing a plastic bushing on the metal part in your doors u need this.

    If you have to slam your hatch a dozen times to get it to close or if it doesn't close at all this could be the part you need. They tend to get old crack and fall off. If you look at the piece that recieves the latch and it's just metal then your bushing is gone and this will solve your problem.

    Could be better

    My first impression is that these bushings are incredibly soft. They fit well. After a few days, the latch hooks are digging into the plastic. I don't expect these to last very long. I will contact Energy Suspension and give them the dimensions I need (1/2 ID x 11/16 OD) to have them send a length of the correct hardness material I can cut. Or maybe even from Home Cheapo...

    The best thing for my doors after the hinge kit

    After I redid the doors with the hinge kit, they still closed a bit more, they close almost as good as when I bought the car 19 years ago

    Door Latch Bushings

    I've been ordering several parts restoring a 1991 Convertible Mustang GT lately and my doors were popped out a little and would not close and stay completely shut. I ordered the door latch bushings and a quick and easy install and now the doors close all the way and no longer rattle. Thanks American Muscle!

    Great product (I have a trick for install)

    When I removed the hex bold to install the bushing I could not get the washer past the threads, not sure if this is an issue with just my car (84 GT). I watched the install video and the washer just turned off ,but that was not the case with my car. As an easy fix I cut the bushing with a pair of scissors and was able to pop it over the bold. It works great and both the drivers side and passengers doors now close great and do not rattle. Cheap money for a Great result. 2 minute fix. Great Product

    No More rattle

    I replaced all of the bushings but the biggest difference is the hatch and driver door. The hatch was completely gone and it rattled like crazy and was really loud now it's nice and quite and the driver door was really loose and now it's nice and tight. Now I Just need to get the door pins in.

    No longer have to slam the hatch!

    The bushing on my hatch was missing and caused it to rattle around and was a pain to close such a simple thing that causes that much trouble. Shuts smoothly and doesn't rattle around anymore. When installing make sure to mark off where the striker sat before so that you put it back exactly the same way having it off alittle can cause it to not wanna shut.

    Door Latch Striker Bushing

    Pros; Good quality, easy installation, perfect fit. Cons; Price is a little high for a piece of plastic, not original color. I will end up ordering another one so both will match since the passenger side is the original color "white" and the new one is grey.

    This product works great as a replacement for broken rear hatchet strikers!

    The rear hatch striker on my Mustang after 20+ years started to dry out and crack up. This part helped me replace my latch striker so that my hatch actually stays closed and locked!

    The product worked as advertised.

    After cleaning the hatch latch striker and removing, the bushing fit snug over the post. After installation was complete there was no more rattle from a loose fitting hatch latch.
