My Mustang top goes up and down, but unevenly--left side is slower than the right and I have to pull a little harder to latch the roof. Any ideas?

    Needs to be diagnosed of course but chances are you either have a bad lift cylinder on one side or a broken "tension rod", which helps not with lifting but alignment at the top goes up and down.

    So just replacing one lift cylinder may not fix the problem--it would only be a guess. I suppose if you were handy and patient you could swap the cylinders left and right but that's not all that easy to do, as hydraulic lines are involved as well.
