    The two tracks that are holding my rear window (73') are rusted and need to be replaced, but the rollers are also completly shot, kinda oval in shape and very loose. Instead of replacing the entire mechanism I am going to remove the old posts and rollers and replace them with a bolt and bearing. It is the only thing that I can think of to save on a little cash. Any opinions or suggestions would be greatly welcomed.

    That will work, you could also probably go down to your local window repair place and get from them what they use....new roller that rivets in place. Just an idea.

    LMC sells replacements for $4.95. I have not ordered them yet but I am going to after I confirm this info:

    The rear roller has the same part number as the door windows. If you compare the two on my truck they are different.

    Anyways, if they are indeed for the back window, you can't beat five bucks.
