Windshield wipers?

The wipers on my '94 Ranger are *****. I want to get a set of those nice silicone wipers that apparently last way longer. Which ones would you guys recommend?

Rain-X, single arced rib, no metal !

Also, get the next smallest size of Wiper, my '03 calls for 18" and I run 16" without any noticeable change in Wiped Area. The smaller size will work ok and reduce drag and ear on the motor and linkage.
My wipers linkage, used to make a slight noise, I never could find it; I went to the smaller sized wipers, 16" Single Bar, and no more noise.

Also, buy the Windshield Wash from Lowe's, great stuff, acts like the Rain-X Wipes that used to out there... i.e. water beading, water run off.

These are items I use and both work great.

p.s. I get my wipers from Auto-Zone !

I like Bosch icons. Like the rain-× they have no metal or springs. They handle our northeastern winters and rainy summers great.
