Hey Y'all the rear doors on my '58 plymmie shut pretty hard. The reason is the stirker is a little higher than they should be. Is there anyway i can adjust them so they shut nice and easy like the front two?

The strikers are adjustable, loosen the three phillips screws to allow movement of the striker. These screws are generallly very tight, find a screwdriver that fits them perfectly, and strike the screwdriver with a hammer to break the tension loose.

It will take a bit of fiddling to get them just right, so be patient.
