Before you spend the money for the new windows I would have the door panels checked out by someone your trust. It sounds like there's something in the window track that's either broken or worn or needs adjustment scratching your windows. If you don't get this fixed your new windows will also get scratched before long.

I have worked on many of these (way to many to count), and I have never come across this, where all four windows get scratches. The only thing I can think of is vandalisum, or someone play a joke on you but they either forgot or it got out of hand. When you take the door panels off (in order to replace glass), before they/you remove the old windows watch the glass going up and down many times, if something is binding you will see it here. You didn't mention were the scratches were on the glass (to one side, middle, here and there). Hope this helps and best of luck.

This is a common thing on Grand Am's and almost all GM products. Dirt becomes lodged in the moulding at the bottom of the window and everytime the window goes up and down the dirt will start to wear grooves into the glass.

It's dirt and grit in the felt strip at the top of the door. Roll the window down and scrape it with a piece of plastic like a credit card to dislodge the junk.
