I know your ordered from a good place and the bushings look to be the correct ones but bushing that are slightly too big I'll cause that sticking door issue. Also, you need to adjust the door latch so the two jaws of the latch contact the bushing in the middle. With the door striker removed does you door molding and body line line up to the quarter panel ? If not you need to adjust the door at the hinges.

That's how my door sounds. I could close my eyes and think you were opening the door to my car.

Those striker bushings are sensitive to where you locate them. If it seems to stick, just readjust it. Eventually you get them to a point where the door will close with a easy push, and then will open easily.

Then, you'll jack up one wheel and do to open the door and see how much the body twists because you'll notice how harder it is to open the door. Then you buy subframe connectors.
