The driver side door makes a coupe of lloud noises everytime it's opened and closed. The dealer says it the mechanism that keeps the door from flying back in a heavy wind and would cost over $400 to...

The dealer is right, the latch that keep door from opening to far wears and makes a poping noise but 400.00 is a bit much, try the web and see if you can find one cheaper, its not to hard to install, you would just need to remove door panel to replace, good day

1996 mustang gt makes a reking noise when turning

There are several possible causes to your problem.

Most likely it is a ball joint.
A bad strut mount will make a similar noise. Sometimes dirt/rust in-between the strut spring and the rubber insulators can cause a creak.
If the environment is really dry or the rubber bushings on the car are really old, they can cause a creaking noise.

I would have it checked out because if it is a ball joint, it will eventually cause uneven tire wear and can even separate, resulting in total loss of control of the vehicle.

My 1997 Jeep Grand Cheroke's doors close funny. Both of them don't close smoothly. Anyone else have this problem? It's not when the door latches it's during the close, like something is bent but it's on...

Each door has two hinges. The bottom hinge has a lever spring and two rollers attached that prevents the door from swinging freely when it is opened or closed. (one roller for opening and one for closing) If the door seems like its bent, it is probably because the rollers are frozen and when you open/close the door the lever spring is scraping across the raised edges of the rollers instead of riding them. If the door is not moving smoothly, or is making loud creaking noises, give a good dose of WD-40 to the hinges as well as the rollers, especially the rollers. The rollers should roll when the lever spring engages it as you open/close the door.

Passenger Door "Pops"

Sounds like the detent rollers on the door hinge are dry and need some grease (if the door has proper clearance on the front fender...check this first) spray some white lithium grease spray on the hinges and related moving parts on the door hinges upper and lower and the plastic guide that goes in the door... Let me know how it goes.
