Alright I know my Father in law's Ranger does it past 55 and my X does it past 55. Anyone else get the slight lift off of the windshield wipers just enough that it no longer hits the driver side window the passenger one works just fine but the drivers side sucks ass I tried switching arms thinking it was a weak spring and that was a big no , anyone have a fix for this ?

I have that problem with my rear wiper but I haven't attempted a fix yet. I'm going to simply bend the wiper arm in at it's center point (on the thin exposed metal) more towards the window and see if that works. I prefer to try the cheap fixes first.

You sound like me, bend it till it breaks.
Hey, it doesn't work anyway, right?

Also consider those cheap little air foils that attach to the wiper arm, the faster you go the more amount of air pressure is applied to the wiper, that might help?

On the front, sure but not on the rear.
