How do you get the windshield wipers to stop and start at the right positions. on 2002 Dodge Ram 1500

I have tried taking the arm off and repositioning it at the bottom but the wiper on the driver side does not come to full top and goes too far down on pulse.

Sounds like the rod that connects the two wipers is bent! may be able to straighten it instead of replacing. Common problem in icy conditions not so much in southern Cali.
