Bouncy doors

It seems when I am on bumpy roads,or speed bumps ect. the doors bounce,
like the rubber bempers are too soft or something.I know this is the noise because I can push on the doors from the outside and mimic the same noise, is this normal? has anyone else noticed this, any remedy?
I also just had my upper balljoints done(at 54K) and am still getting clunking undernieth somewhere, any ideas on that one too?

Upper balljoints done at 54k? That seems a little early to me, but mind you I think my roommate's Ranger is due to them too at 60k and the dealership won't warranty them (falls under normal wear and tear.. wth? at 60k?!!). Most of my other vehicles have been on their factory joints at 200k+, even with heavy offroad use.

Which doors are you talking about, main doors or rear cab doors? That should still be under the warranty I'd think. LR

IF you grab the back of the door when opened and lift it up and down does it make the same noise and feel like it has too much play there ? IF so it sounds like the door hinge bushings

Its a super crew,
The noise isnt the hinges, its the latch moving on the catch, Im thinking the rubber bumbers on the door are too soft or something allowing the movement.
