Default Aftermarket Window Cranks

I have looked everywhere on the web for a set of window cranks. The factory ones vibrate and rattle under the better bass of my new system. I can be content with it if theres no fix lol.

Are you sure the cranks just aren't loose? Pop the top off and tighten the screw.

Buy new window cranks. They're 10+ years old...things wear out and window cranks are no exeption. They get loosey goosey and sloppy...mine were just like that...rattled all the time. Added a sub and the vibrations suddenly disappeared. I replaced mine with brand new ford ones from the dealer about 2 years ago and it was one of the best 40 bucks or so that I've ever spent.

I'll try tighting them up. I didn't know you could. I have a new factory set from my old ranger. Thanks.
