How to Adjust Entry Door Lock

My door is creaking really bad. Its not the deadbolt rubbing, but the doors locking mechanism rubbing up against the larger part of the cylinder mounted to the frame. Its rubbing on the end farthest way from the door frame.

I cannot find a way to adjust the mechanism shown in the picture. Is there a way to move the door mechanism out a little further when it latches to the cylinder so it does not rub on the end?

Appreciate the help

Adjusting the post is the best answer, but you might also try wrapping a couple wraps of electrical tape on the post. Did that to mine and it almost eliminated the noise. I just have to replace the tape every once in awhile, but well worth the effort.

Hope this helps.
