I have a 94 XLT and I want to replace the slides. Guys please don't get upset at me but would it be acceptable to notch the windows on the track to get the slides out, so I don't have to take the whole suspension out like the manual says. I figure I need about 1/8 inch on each side of the window. Has anybody ever done this before?

You shouldn't have to notch the window to get it out. I have done it on my '98 and it was pretty simple. Loosening the track all the way makes it considerably easier. A hammer and large screwdriver made short work of driving the old ones off (through the track window) and the new ones went on almost as fast.

The tracks may be enough different between the '94 and '98 that you have to notch it, but I would be surprised. I just drilled 270 1" holes in my track (ported it), I doubt shaving an 1/8th off of a couple of windows will hurt it.

Hey THUNDAR
I changed my sliders on my 95 xlt and I used a die grinder and enlarged the holes just enough to get the them out.It didnt seem to bother any thing.

Thank guys for your help ! You definitley cannot get these out without providing clearance. Might be the kind of track that is on this sled or the year of the sled. A die grinder is what I was going to use to do this job. It will make life a whole lot easier !
Thanks Again - THUNDAR
