Have you tried lubing up you hinges? My doors weigh a freakin' ton and do a pretty good job of shutting themselves with a little nudge. I'd try some white lithium on your lock striker and other exposed lock parts, and some on the hinges while you at it. It aught to get rid of some squeaks if you have any too. Good luck!

White lithium is more of a grease than an oil like WD-40, it comes out of the can liquidy then sets up. Its pretty water resistant and stays where you put it, hinges and such is what it is supposed to be used for. You can get it anywhere, Autozone, Wal-Mart, etc. Good luck!
