Door Latch Striker Bushing 1971-1993 is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Now Have a Solid Thud When Closing the Doors. Both of the doors on my 1990 Mustang were no closing all the way. They would also make a loud metallic clashing sound when I closed the doors. I did some research and found the CJ Pony Parts Video on why the doors were doing this. I ordered two of these Latch Striker Bushings and installed them. Now, both doors shut with a Solid Thud like you would hear on a New Car. They are Awesome. To install them on a 1990 Mustang, just make sure that you have a T50 (Torque Bit) for your ratchet wrench, and the Installation will take less than 2 minutes per door. Thank You Sooo Much CJ Pony Parts for having almost everything that I need to keep my Classic 1990 Mustang 5.0 Convertible LX Sport Edition running like new.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Issue but not really... Bought these for an 82 Mustang GT... Door strikers and hatch strikers, the washers did not come off on my car... Ended up just slicing these bushings down one side and gluing the on... works just fine now. But they wouldnt just slide on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works I needed these for my Mustang II but the larger washer on the pin is non-removable on this car. I sliced it length wise and used superglue to connect it back together and tied it tightly with string while it dried. I also sanded down the end just a tad to make it fit perfect. I don't know if the superglue will hold up over time but if not, I will try something else. The doors are great now. The shipped price is great and I am very happy about the product that CJ sells. Thanks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Huge improvement If you have not bought these and changed them recently then do it now! My car used to make a god awful racket over every bump. These bushings slipped right on and the car is quiet as a mouse inside now.You dont realize how much noise your doors are making until you put a stop to it!!!! Make sure you have a T45 handy to take off the strikers so your not driving all over when your parts arrive !!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not for 71-73 Mustang The striker on 71-73 Mustangs is not able to be disassembled for installation of this item. The only reason I gave it 2 stars and not 1 is that you can make it work by cutting it and sliding it over the striker, then gluing it. Seems to be ok so far. The bushing itself appears to be of high quality and my only complaint is that the description should state that it needs modification.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from striker bushing It was supposed to fit my daughters 86 Mustang LX. It does not. Washer on factory striker bolt is captive. Make sure you check before ordering. I will now have to get the correct bolt for this application now. It did quiet the door rattle down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked for my hatch striker As I saw by another reviewer, this fits the latch striker if you slit it and reglue it. Was an easy and quick fix for my SVO and stopped the annoying hatch rattle. They were so cheap here that I bought a few extras for the doors as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality merchant I bought this product for the hatchback fastener. It's just a little bit shorter than the original, but it seems to work fine. I also bought the heavy duty hatchback shocks. They are worth the extra money.

Product Questions

I have a 78 Mustang II, I just bought new striker bolts that came with hard plastic bushings. They made my doors impossible to open. What is this made of and will it work well with my car?

Asked by: JetPilot
I just installed the bushing on my 78 Cobra and they worked great. Since the washer don't come off, I had to slice it length wise and superglue it. I also sanded the length down just a tad. The bushing isn't made of hard plastic, it is a softer stuff.

I see you have striker bushings for the door.  Do you have the bushing for a 1988 Mustang GT hatch?  I don't need the whole striker assembly, just the bushing for the hatch.  Thanks. 

Asked by: 1988 GT
We only offer it as an assembly,

Door Latch Striker Bushing 1971-1993 Video Transcript
By Bill Tumas: If you're experiencing play in the door latch of your '79 through '93 Mustang, before you out and buy an expensive door latch, you'll want to check your door striker bushing. Many times this bushing has failed or gone altogether and that's going to cause a lot of play in your door latch.

The door striker bushing is going to be located right here on the door striker. In the case of our '90 GT it's completely gone, which is causing some of the play we're getting in our door. As you can see we have a decent amount of up and down play in our door and our door pins are good so the striker bushing is probably causing the problem.

Ford used this same striker bushing in all '71 through '93 Mustangs. Installation is very simple. The only tool required is going to be a T50 Torx bit. Simply remove the striker. Once we have the striker off, remove the washer, unthread the striker from the catch, install the new striker bushing, install the washer, then reinstall on the car, and your installation's finished.

It's only a small inexpensive bushing, but it makes a huge difference. The door closes nice and tight now. All of our play is also gone from the door. Installation should literally take you less than a minute and you'll be back on the road in no time.
