I have seen a feature article on some site out there, shows ya exactly how to tighten it up. I'm trying to find it cause mine's saggin a bit too. My rear window is a little funky (loose) at the top too, otherwise my top is perfect so I hate to replace it. I know it's out there. When I find it I'll share it with ya. LMK if you find something first?

Found this on ls1 tech
Tools: Phillips head screw driver, Dap contact cement, something to punch holes in the material such as a pointed Philips head screw driver.
First, turn off the hydraulic valve in the trunk. Next lay the top all the way back till it is down. Take a marker and mark a few spots along the edge of the top. Next unscrew the header panel. This will expose the material that is glued down. Pull it up, your top should move freely now. Depending on how stretched out it is, pull the material about 1/4 - 1/2 of an inch, I normally do half. Punch new screw holes in the material starting from the center and working your way out. Screw it down, then close the top and make sure it is a little tight yet no creases. Now you can lower it back down and unscrew the screws. Next you want to glue the material down, the best thing to use and I use it on all tops is Dap Contact Cement from Lowes or Home Depot, about 3-4 dollars a bottle. Spread that on where the old glue was, lay the material back down, and screw the header panel on. Lastly turn the hyd. pump valve back on.
