Commonly known as a door check link. It comes from inside the door and attaches to the pillar. There was a fault on the early Cateras where the sheet metal on the door would fail where the check link was attached. Check at the door end of the link, if it is just a link problem, you should see(or feel) the studs and nuts, and when moving the door in and out they should remain stationary.
