After getting a cataract removed I could finally see well enough to get the window regulator out of our '58 Impala passenger door. Woohoo!

Thanks again to everyone who helped me with this.

I see that there are two types of replacement rollers offered: grooved and plain. My questions are if these are interchangeable and if the grooved versions are an improvement? I don't have enough left of the one remaining sample to ascertain what kind it was.

Are there any vendors from whom you have purchased that supplied good parts? I'm not interested in getting the cheapest price, I just want to get good ones so I never have to replace them again.

Thanks for any suggestions.

A lot of the parts for tri fives are the same as 58 including the adjusters, hardware etc. I like Danchuk's stuff stay with 57 stuff and most of it matches perfectly. They show two different size rivets were used.
