Loose, rattling doors when closed.........

I just inherited a 90 Ranger and have some issues with the doors. When they are closed, I can still move them back an forth a bit which allows them to rattle when driving. This movement is at the back of the doors, as if they are not secure around the striker plate hinge. Is there a plastic or rubber bushing that I am missing on the the striker plate hinge that is supposed to ensure a snug fit? The truck was repainted a while back so I am assuming whatever the issue is that they were the source as it is the same on both doors. Thanks for the help!

There are no bushings on the latch pin at all. That must be the issue. The hinge pins are good as best I can tell. Do I have to get he bushings from a dealer or are they available at a regular parts store? Thanks Redneckstone!
