an old trick is to use tape on the door seams, then drive it, you can do one door at a time for better access, or tape off both doors & climb through the window.
if you don't hear or feel anything, take SOME of the tape off & drive it again,
do this until you feel or hear the noise again

Most times it will coming from the leading upper edge of the door, from about the door handle height upwards.
If it is coming from the door, the rubber door seal could be the cause. Another cause could be the door adjustments. There is a 3rd thing that it could be, the upper portion of the door could be bent outwards & then it would need to be bent back to where it belongs, i did bend one back into place, but i don't know if i would do it again, it was an older 1956 chevy pickup
