Hi guys. I want to tackle the problem of my driver window coming off the tracks.
I know there are 2 repair parts offered:
The factory linear slider (?)


OR

Dorman 74444 roller


Is the Dorman part any better?

Thanks

The Dorman part will work. I used them to replace my sliders. Tim Swink gave me a bunch of them.

If I recall, I may have just snapped them into the rail rather than slide them in from the end.

The factory ones are the ones that break, Dorman's are the one's that are used.

The rollers are a one time fix. The sliders will break again through the middle hole.

which ever one you use,. the main thing is to grease the heck out of the track,.then eith slider will last a long time,.
dormans are easier to install,.

I've got it back together & working with Dorman part. Is white grease good for this?
