is it normal for there to be front-to-back play possible in the rear windows?

i am having problems with the rear windows - when rolled down, the front edge appears to be sticking to the leading rubber seal. This appears to be easy enough to fix BUT....

I noticed when troubleshooting that the front windows will NOT rock back and forth nearly as much as the rear windows. I traced the play to a specific guide rail, but because of its location I can't tell if there is something worn or broken.

before I put the door back together i want to know if I have larger issues with the mechanism.

an odd question I know, but would greatly appreciate any insight. thanks very much.
