my mom said she got a ton of lake effect, around 8". i lived within walking distance of the southshore.... lake effect sucks. its like shoveling water and its too thick for our snowblower. it throws the snow maybe 3 feet. so you are forced to shovel it. i made a point to be a wonderful son this morning and sent her a picture of my clock and thermometer this morning at 6:43. it was 65 degrees. she called me an *** lol.

sarah- my car did that when i bought it. i took off the wiper arms and got a razor blade between all the splines they hook onto. works perfect now. my mom did what you did with her century and the first time, they worked backwards for whatever reason (off was directly up) the second time, she busted the gear in the wiper motor and i had to replace it. mine and my dads car both have the rain sense blades, and when we start our cars it always does a test swipe. my dad started his car without cleaning the window and knocking the wipers loose when he first got the car because he forgot it did it and it stripped about every possible part out.

gm makes shitty wipers. ive always cleaned my windshield and knocked the wipers first before i even get in just so im not tearing my firewall apart like my parents did lol.

they work perfect on my car... as for my mas century, her windshield is super flat. when i first bought them the passenger side didnt even touch on the top 2 inches. i fixed that by bending it lol.


on another subject, my hids are purty darn sorry looking.

i think it depends on the windshield honestly. the $10 steel ones work better on flat windshields like your lesabres and i presume my moms century, where the lattitudes work better on more curved ones. lauren and i have both tried the $10 ones on our cars (hers is an 02 civic) and they suck. but then our windshields have more of an arc to them.
