Default Need Wiper Arms for S-Series

Anybody know of an aftermarket parts manufacturer making wiper arms for the S-Series? GM is no longer providing them, and my limited selection of local aftermarket parts stores don't have listings for them, either. I'm aware that wrecking yards are an option, but I'd rather buy new.

Any leads are appreciated.

Thanks!

I don't believe I've ever replaced ONLY the blades. I've always replaced the entire arm assembly when doing wiper blades. Generic assembly arms can be found at almost any FLAP or Wally World.

He's looking for the actual metal arm that hooks to the motor that attaches to the blade.

Oh... from the shoulder to the elbow, and not from the elbow to the hand. Roger that.

Left side is $48 plus s/h....if it's actually in stock (site doesn't say)

I don't think the right side arm is the same length as the left but they might be, never really paid attention.

The proper way to fix a S-Series automatic is to replace it with a 5spd O:)

They're definitely two different lengths. Can't remember off-hand, but definitely different lengths when placed one beside the other.

Thanks for the lead!
