Replacing sliding door track

A handy person from Colorado says:
I have a worn and loose metal door track in a vinyl patio slider. I am looking at using 80-105 as a replacement; however, the original track is 9/16" in height. I cannot install 80-100 over the existing track because it is no longer fixed in place.
Would you recommend only using the 80-105 replacement, or installing 80-100 over the 80-105 to make up the difference in height?
I greatly appreciate your assistance.

We actually replaced a similarly sized track with our 80-105 just recently and it worked well. Even though it's not as tall, you still have adjustments in the rollers themselves that can make up the difference.
