anti rattle strip??

who makes the best anti-rattle strips for our trucks...these are the strips that clip into the top of the doors and stop the window from rattling in the track....I have the ones from LMC and they stink any other vendors have better quality ones??.....Thanks.....Paul

Explain the problem with LMC's, then we can determine if there are better ones for you.

First they seem to distort very easily, The outer ones with the rubber on them seem to put to much pressure on the window and curl up when you put the window up. they also seem to bind with the metal at the bottom of the glass when you try and put the window up all of the way.....I think that is it....Thanks

The outer rubber gets a little better with time as the rubber shrinks but they all seem to do that. I have noticed it on every one of these trucks I have ever had and installed them on.

Problem solved......apparently I did not notice that the rust bug had gotten to my metal track on the bottom of the window....it was peeling in the area around the clip farthest forward on the pass. side. This was causing the binding problem. It was not the fault of the LMC rattle strips!!!....My bad.....I had gone ahead and installed the drivers side and that was working much better so I investigated a little farther on the pass. side and discovered the problem...Thanks...Paul
