Door Part Name?

On the frame is that piece that the door latches onto. There's a plastic sleeve on it. That piece has split, and causing my wife problems shutting the door on her 89 Bronco. Where can I get one to replace it so that my life can become a bit more peaceful?

The plastic door striker bushings can be found in the "help" section at just about every auto parts store. Around here, it's a set of 4 bushings per package - 2 short ones, 2 long ones. One length is for the doors, the other for the tailgate. The tailgate requires 2 bushings, one for each side.
So the packaged set will do the whole Bronco.

To retain your existing door latch alignment, outline the big washer with a marker, or put on 4 pieces of masking tape that just touch the washer from all 4 sides, like at 12, 3, 6, and 9 O'Clock. Then you can align the striker bolt exactly back to where it was before, as you tighten it.

The nut plate the striker bolt actually screws into is captive inside the body panel, but it can move up/down in/out when loosened.

You will need a #47 Torx bit to take off the striker bolt. ACE hardware sells them for about $25.

Yea I suppose they would, but the #47 is also used on the seat frames (and probably some other stuff too). So it's a good buy.
