Local Chev dealer changed my blades and on the ones installed, the inside blade sticks under the hood.  Apparently they put in the wrong type.  I bought some from a "Vette" site and they also stick.  Any suggestions??

Yep...same here.
 
When they did away with wiper refills this problem came about.
 
You can:
A.--adjust your hood taller.
B.-- slightly grind the top of the wiper arm connecting clip.
C.--a little of both A/B

No, no, no!   All you guys need is the correct wiper blades!   There shouldn't be any need to grind anything!   It's pretty amazing that a Chebby Store wouldn't know what they're doing!   The Trico 20-2 is the blade you need for the '84-'94 Corvette.  The '95-'96 need the Trico 20-3.

I use Michelin "High Performance" 20".   They are also low profile.

yes yes yes!
The info I posted was for him continuing to use his current, recently purchased arm/blades.
I can also tell you that none of the part houses here carries what you mentioned (in stock).
That leaves online ordering for many.
If the OP wants to order another set, post up a part number for him and others.
