Found wipers that fit the special "push button" wiper arm attachments on the caddy srx. Trico neoform beam blades direct-connect without any cheesy, ugly, plastic adapters. The wiper arm sits lower and there's less play in the attachment. Smooth, quiet, wipe-clean and priced fairly (much less than OEM at the dealer). There's full product info at wipers123 dot com. Mainly an fyi...

Do you get good contact with those? I've heard about contact issues because they're too stiff...just wanted to ask.

they work great at low speeds, once you get moving those it skips a little

since rain-x doesn't list a 17" blade, has anyone tried an 18"? I have done this on other vehicles without any trouble as long as it is only 1" different.

it depends on what kind of rainx blade you are getting. The Lats have a 17" I think it was only the winter blades that dont have the 17"

Yeah, see...I don't have any problems at any speed with the neoforms. I've talked to others on the rain-x latitudes and keep hearing things like this. The kicker is that the rain-x lats cost more at my local wally world than the neoforms that I regularly buy online. Its too bad - the rain-x look SO BEEFY and nice...its a darn shame.

I wouldn't do it - even if there's clearance, there's a reason the engineers specified a certain size. Most likely it has more to do with load on the motor, linkage and arm.

On the rainx web site, they only list 24" repel and lats for gmc terrain. I have only seen down to 18" repel or lats any where I've looked. I had the lats on my old car and had no trouble with speed skipping or anything.
