Door Latch Issue

Hey guys, so I've been looking up and down, left and right but I can't seem to find anything particular about the door latch recall on my 96. I've tried looking for replacement parts but no on seems to sell it? My driver's side door be swinging open when I'm making right turns and at high speed as well... I messaged my local dealer but the s.o.b's haven't replied in like two weeks T-T Any help would be greatly appreciated. Oh I live in Los Angeles btw.

Here's a good thread about the repair you need:

Here's the parts you need, door hinge kit, and the new door striker; when the plastic comes off, the door won't stay closed.

The bad hinges kill the plastic.

Well hopefully it's that, I'll definitely look into it. Ohh right, let me rephrase my question, my door does like a popping sound, like it disengages then a few seconds later the door opens up...or in very fast sharp right turn the door will just opened without the "popping" sound.
