    Ok I'm at the point now I need 2 new windshield wipers. The whole thing arm and wiper. I looked on Amazon reviews said the spring was too strong and they replaced it. I don't want to buy something only to modify it. Has anyone bought the Lmc ones? They are about $20 bucks each I think which if they fit with no mods I think this is a good deal. Maybe you found a cheaper one that works fine. Just looking for what others have used. Maybe I can get this bitch on the road soon with a horn installed and new wipers she should pass safety inspection and start driving it. Tia

    The spring was too strong? What spring, the one that holds the arms down against the windshield? How can that be "too strong"? I feel like if it was too weak it wouldn't hold them against the windshield and they would skip at highway speeds, but I can't imagine what would make them too strong, except maybe if they're like insanely obnoxiously too strong to the point where they crush the wipers or you can't lift them up to change the blade or something. I take Amazon reviews with a grain of salt, it seems like people just love to bitch and complain about anything and everything on that website. They're probably perfectly fine...

    I replaced my wiper and arms from a later model. The sprayer is on the arm.

    Can't tell you how it works because I live in the desert. Either bone dry or rains so hard you can't see.
