fixed door rattle on my SCAB

So last year I read a thread someplace about using next generation door bump stops and strikers on the '04-'08 SCABs and I ordered the parts then. That was 4 bumpers and 2 strikers, they've been on a shelf since they got here . Each frt door has a bumper near strike location, each rear 1/2 door has a bumper at bottom near strike location. My OEM ones were thinner on the front doors than those on lower rear doors. The new strike plates have a molded in rubber bumper as well to catch the door edge. The post I read suggested just two of the new ones needed to go on lower rear door, to move those old ones to front, use new strike plates or catches.

Today, I replaced all 4 of the round bumpers with same W705903-S300 bumpers and both striker plates with 9L3Z1522008 and cured any rattle I had with our '07. I used the newer round bumpers in all 4 places, didn't seem too big. Put old ones back in bag as spares. I had ordered them all last Fall sometime, they just been laying on a shelf. Very solid now.

Didn't know reg cabs or SCREWs rattled? Rattle on ours wasn't much, but times you'd wonder if door was really shut tight. Now, there is no attle or room for play. You might look at the numbers on Amazon, see how they compare? I think it's most notable on the SCABs with the long opening and no posts?

The 04-08 regular cabs have smaller suicide doors.
