so for the longest time i have had just 1 door left to do with the damping material. i allocated 2.5 sheets per front door and 2 for each rear door. the biggest thing for me was the last picture putting the little foam spacer strips where the lock knob slids up and down. that thing used to rattle and drive me crazy, i looked like a total spaz driving sown the road holding it with my finger. :D

Very Nice! Can you please post up some step by step instructions to do this DIY? Thank you
I'm going to say that it's probably something along the lines of:

#1 remove door panels
#2 stick sound dampening stuff everywhere
#3 replace panels

Does it really make a difference versus cost? Is it worth it?

my total cost was 0 dollars as it was given to me but it totally makes the clank go away in the doors shutting. i did the same thing to my 04 SOP years ago and i had to pay for the stuff back then, and i would again if i didnt "know" people that get me "samples" and "leftovers." this all came from packaging that was damaged and couldnt be sold so it was stiing around collecting dust.
