Do you not have any of the places that do USPS, UPS, or FEDEX shipping? The ones here never seem to have more than one or two people waiting in line.

Not near me and with the time constraints I had. No worries, part shipped today as it would have if I mailed it yesterday at 430

2000 LS 2.2. Left motor mount. Easier than the RH was because I had the AC, PS and exhaust manifold out while waiting for my new exhaust to be delivered.

Replaced my driver side wiper arm with the dorman 42533 part from advance auto.
Looks like it's bent more than my old one, where my old one looks more straight ,so it should hold against the window better.
I finally had to use the wipers on high for a few minutes and that's when it went all crazy, so I pulled over and took it off so it didn't tear up the threads on the shaft anymore.
Maybe I could of just tried to re position it and tighten it down again. But I figured it was shot

I would get a correct one from the boneyard. If you use Rain-X you never have to turn the wipers on at highway speeds and only intermittent at lower speeds will give better vision than high-speed wipers anytime plus less wear and tear on your wiper system. I have been in horrific downpours where everyone was pulling off to the shoulder and stopping because they couldn't see and I didn't need to even turn my wipers on at 55 mph the rain was flying off my windshield for a perfectly clear view. Hardest rain I have ever seen and it was North Texas.

It is the correct one according to rockauto, and an OEM one is like 75 bucks, and I didn't want one from the junkyard since I'm sure the spring is weak on all of them anyways, common problem for these things.
I usually wax my windows when I wax the truck, so that's my rain x lol
