Whats up with my windows?

Well, my windows work well, except for the fact that when they go down, no problems, when they go up, it takes quite a while. Thought of greasing something, but then I cant think what would need greasing. Any help here?
The motors work well, no probs with the electrics.

What year do you have? Some had the "Snake" drive others had the "scissor" style.

Its an 89 32I5i - scissor I think. At least thats what it looked like to me when I opened up the door. But then again, I dont know much about what either looks like.

The regulator could be out of balance (one side pushing up more than the other) or your window weather strips are bad. Tough to troubleshoot something like that over the internet....

I think I would go with the weather strips, cause it happens on all the windows.
I also, for some odd reason, think that my drivers door is slightly bent. When I hit a bit of speed, the wind howls through the gap between the door and the roof of the car - could my door be attatched a bit skew?
