    I do have the 3875580/1 strips but one has a superceded p/n written on it of 404828 which is what's shown in the '79 parts catalog. At any rate, the listing said they were '78-'79, which doesn't necessarily mean it is correct. Guess I need the front seals also. Mystery solved! I'm not concerned if they are "correct" for my '79, just so they work and fit like they should.

    If worse comes to worst, I can modify the pieces from the repop seals for now. Better than a gaping hole, lol.

    Thanks guys!

    Hand written is the key. If the mopar label was the newer number then it would have been what you needed. The seals are pretty much impossible to find NOS. Especially since it was only for two model years.

    BTW, I know it`s too late now but BlueStar had the right door weatherstrip in the part number you needed. https://bluestarperformance.com/fron...79-81-nos.html You can see in the pic of the weatherstrip it has both ends needed.

    Thanks for the info! Regardless, I'm still glad I bought them even if they aren't the '79 version. I put the end caps from the repop seals on for now.

    It would explain why I needed to drill a hole for the pushpin at the front of the door. Wrong or not, these seals are WAY better than the repops I had.

    The 79-80 seal is different on the doors. Metro and Steele both offer the difference.

    That's what I had on the car, Steele repops and they were total crap (IMO). The ends were more like closed cell dense foam rubber that tore if you looked at it, didn't have the metal core, they were way too thick and the wrong shape. Made it impossible to shut the door without slamming it a couple times and caused air leaks at the lower corners of the glass because they pushed the roof rail seal away from the glass. I was unimpressed with them, if it isn't obvious already, lol.

    I don't know if they've improved them since I got mine. It was close to 15 years ago when I originally bought them. Only wish I'd have taken them out and looked closer before I tossed my originals. It wasn't intentional but they must have ended up in a load of junk one of the times I cleaned the garage to get more room for the good things.

    On the brighter side of the news, my new sway bar link came today.

    I have a pair of aftermarket door weatherstrips and I probably won`t use them because they do look poorly made on the ends. I guess they are better then nothing.

    They're still crap. Same crap from each company. You should try rolling the windows up on those rear corners of the window seals. Not happening with the door shut. But my cars are fine with them since I rarely don't have the windows down while driving anyhow.
