Suggestions for replacements wipers all around? I replaced the fronts and find the driver side hits at the top. Will need to try another option. Have yet to find a replacement for the rear. Used the Goodyears I found at Costco. Thanks.

Wrong length, most likely. Most every place that sells blades has a book showing the proper blade for a specific vehicle. Never had a problem finding a Trico or Anco to fit my various vehicles.

24 inch for the driver side, 18 inch for the passenger side. I usually stick to bosch icons or rain-x. I believe 14inch for the rear.

Just so you know you can use a 16" blade on the rear (2 inches longer than what is specified). Did it on my wife's because they were out of the shorter one. Doesn't hit or rub anywhere, and you get more "visible" area. She likes it so I will put another one on when it needs it.

Yes

I found the same to be true with my Cherokee. It seems they use a smaller size for rear blades than is needed.
