On the other hand, isn't 68 fast enough to be going in the rain?

you could bend the arms to apply more pressure against the window. for high speeds you can buy little deflectors that go on your wiper arms to flow air "over" them at faster speeds
or you could replace the spring in the arm that holds your wiper blade tight to the windshield. Dunno if you will find just the springs so you might need replacment arms.

NAPA# 735-3921 (chrome), 735-3922 (black)
around $3.50-$4 a pair.

3 or 4 bucks sounds about right on the price too - not terribly expensive and they work great! Have one on my Subie's driver side wiper now (gave the other one to mom who was having the same problem with her chevy!)
Will try to snap a quick pick tomorrow - too dark out now...

1st one is the snuggy itself
2nd one shows how it fits on the wiper arm.

i think its kind of funny what they chose to call these things.. seeing these truckers going into the store and requesting "wiper snuggies" is kind of humorous..

And yeah, it is a silly name, but they definitely work!!

Couldn't wipe worth crap for years. No luck bending arms, staring at old springs, putting new blades on.... 70 mph on a rainy day and I was screwed.
Hitched my britches up, walked into the local NAPA, laid down my three bucks and said "Bartender, gimme a couple-a-them wiper snuggies."
Being geometrically challenged, it took me longer to mount em than it did to kiss my first girlfriend (and that, my friends, took a while), but I can now report that I am Looking Forward to that first torrential downpour on I-89. These things work like a charm.
