I own a 1973 Mustang Mach 1, currently in the restoration process.
When I roll up or roll down the windows on both sides of the car, it wiggles all over the place and is unsteady, anyone else have this issue or know how to fix it?

Good chance you need to open your door panel and refurb the window regulator and the guides that allow the window to slide up and down:

these things get very dirty and corroded inside the door, and the grease gets caked with dirt. This causes the window motion to become difficult, and then you start putting alot of stress on the plastic parts.

There is also an anti rattle clip that may help:

Best thing to do is bust into the door by carefully removing the interior panel and having a look around. You'll probably be able to see the problem once you can watch the regulator in motion..
