1997 D90 rear door rattling

The back door on my 97 D90 makes a rattling noise when I am driving and I have tightened the hinge bolts. I slam the door but for some reason it sounds like it is not closed completely. Is there something that I might be missing?

My father and I have the same problem on the 94 ST rear door. When we were replacing the hinges with the hinge kits. I noticed that the bottom hinge was not as tight as the top hinge and it seems that the old ball that goes between the two (arms?) of the hinge had enlarged the cup (if you will) of the top hinge that the ball would be in. And that is why the door does not sit oh so level to close properly and rattles so annoyingly, while driving around.

I would look behind the door panel and examine the frame. Mine cracked in a surprising number of places.

Yeah mine looked like swiss cheese. I rewelded it but I have a brand new style door in storage that I plan to install at some point or sell once the 110 sells
