try taking it all back apart and mounting the floor section with the bushing in first ,maybe the sides floor section needs more trimming and just not allowing the floor to go down far enough ,cranking down on the bushing bolt should tell you, it should work..when it fits right just screw the floor where it sits now and disreguard the previous holes where it used to be,weld the holes up later..
As for the drivers door this is very common the cause would be the pins and bushings.the stricker is holding the door and all the weight of the door is on it...Open the door and grabbing from the bottom, lift it up ,if it moves the pins and bushings are wore out..having the striker in for the initial fit is good but to make the final fit the striker should be removed and the door adjusted to fit perfect without it , when you install the striker center it to the latch and use the striker to adjust the in and out (flush) fit only ..
