Has anyone found a way to install longer ww arms on the '08 Providence/Excursion w/ the single windshield? The OEM wiper lengths are woefully inadequate. It does not clear the PS of the WS enough so you can even see the outside rear view mirror !!And where the wipers overlap, there is a huge gap where they leave rain on the WS. Any info would be helpful, especially from someone who has actually changed these out. Robbie

You may also want to concider using a sheathing product like Rain-X or Envy so you don't need the wipers as much. I ran into a down pour and found out I had lost my connections to the wiper motor. I slowed down to 55 and didn't need them .
