Window Adjustment? window goes up crooked

97 crew cab windows go up crooked. i think the motors are working fine the windows will go up and down but it worries me every time i try putting the rear windows up because they almost stop moving it sounds like the motor has to push really hard. i took the door panel off i thought it needed adjusting because the arm that pushes up on the window at the start pushes the rear of the window up way farther then the front side so it wedges itself into the frame. if u lift/pull sideways on the window to straighten it out it goes up fine. why does it do this and how do u fix it??

Possible regulator bad

The regulator could be going bad, causing the window to go up crooked. You can try cleaning it and re-greasing all the metal on metal contact points and see what happens. I have on other cars in past gone to the junk yard with a small 12v battery (cordless drill battery is perfect) and power up the window motor and see how the window goes up and down. If it works get the part.

I have one that does this too. I think the proper thing to do is to replace the window track rubber in the door. I think they get dry and shrink over the years, not to mention a little wear from use. You should be able to find them in LMC truck.
