Extended cab rear window noise

I get a lot of wind noise from my rear windows on my extended cab 98, and its gotten worse over time. They still seal fine with no water getting in when I wash it [it barely ever rains so hard to tell there] but they are noisey. Another member on here posted about these clips:

So I gave them a try. They do not install easy at all or how the listing says, but I got them on finally. They do seem to hold the window on a little tighter, but I still have the wind noise. Are there any fixes anyone knows about besides new window frames for absurd money?

Re: Extended cab rear window noise

When I had my extended cab, it never made noises, but my rear windows never were opened. I have heard folks say they stay sealed and no wind noise until the first time they are opened, then it starts and gets worse as time goes on. Far as I know, no onme has ever found a cure that I know of.

Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift.
Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God!
It's scary when you start making the same noises as your coffee maker.
