You're looking for reverse J-hook. Most have an R after the part number.

Got mine from autozone... They aren't listed in their parts book so I had to measure them and get them by size

Yup. And you probably need to use the little adapters too. They are a common size.

I had lots of problems keeping my windshield clean, until I changed the arms out with ones from a "98 or newer junkyard Camaro. Problem solved.

I think I got mine from Auto Value, they had them in stock and knew what I was talking about. Oriely and Autozone didn't have them, but I also didn't look through their catalogue.

X2, it wasn't listed at oreileys, and after standard 24" ones not contacting the windshield and others not working, the -r ones are a winner for the reverse j hook type.

All you need to do is bend the wiper blade arm slightly so the blade touches the windshield. That's all I needed to do and they work great.

I'm sure bending it will work, but why bend it when there is a correct direct replacement?

Because it works just as good as a direct replacement... That's why
