Hey Charles, The posts are knurled and you adjust the wiper arm, not 
the post. You want the passenger side
arm just a little above horizontal when at rest. Be VERY careful 
about adjusting the wiper arms and always use a
a shop cloth or a towel placed on the cowl BEFORE trying to 
pry/remove the wiper arm from the post. Did you
solve your trunk lock rod problem yet?

PS. Paint shops are notorious for painting the wiper posts so the 
wiper arms are not easily pushed on or removed.
make sure your posts have NO paint on them, that the striations are 
clean and you may even want to grease the
surface very slightly with some white lithium grease.
