I have a 76 CJ5 and I am in need of a spring for my passenger side wiper arm. I have tried matching the one in the driver's side and can't find a good match. I have nice stainless wiper arms that I don't want to replace. If someone can't help me out I will have to buy a whole new arm and just use the spring out of it. I never drive it in the rain but the arm flapping in the wind is driving me insane! Let me know if you have a spare or one on a parts Jeep. I would be forever thankful!

You can get new stainless arms complete out of <a href="http://www.4wd.com" target="_blank">www.4wd.com</a> or <a href="http://www.quadratec.com." target="_blank">www.quadratec.com.</a> They have both Black and Stainless (they call them "silver", but they really are stainless, seriously), and they are not bad, I think around $11/12 or so. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" />

Ok, this is a really, really old thread, but since I recently just had the same exact problem, I thought I'd update it for anyone else in the same situation.

I searched just about everywhere for those little springs and was about to give up and spend the $15 on whole new wiper arms, when I found perfect matches at a local Sears Hardware store. Not a regular Sears, but one of those hardware-only places. They've got racks and racks of little gizmos, and a pretty good selection of little springs.

So instead of spending $30 for new wiper arms, I spent $2.00 for new springs. Ahh, the small victories.
