Default door shaking/rattling while driving

i live down a gravel road and when going down it, my door shakes like it is about to come open down the road, ive already taken it to the shop to have it fixed, but its starting to do it again, they said it was the strike plate that had to be adjusted?

Alright. There is supposed to be a poly bushing around your strike bolt, your latch isnt worn out. Its like $4 for a set of bushings from orielly's. I just fixed mine. It bothered me to. It takes a hex bit to get it out. I unscrewed it, slipped it on, and put back on. I even placed it a little higher than before to make my body lines match up perfect. Just play with it a bit to adjust it.
