Radiator drip...woohoo.

So today I noticed a spot on the ground where my radiator's dripping onto the drivers side frame rail and it looks like it's coming out of the bottom left of the radiator. Guess I'll be driving it up to the dealer.. So question is I have Spartan tunes, exhaust and intake should I go through the trouble of returning it to stock when the issue is such a common problem? And from what I've read it has to do with the clips on the radiator not being tight enough which doesn't seem to me mod related. What do you guys think or what have your experiences been. I haven't really made a good connection with any dealers in my area, this is my trucks first visit, so I don't know who is mod friendly.

Thanks

What Job # is your truck, how many miles, and do you have the venturi T installed? If it were my truck, I would return it to stock prior to taking it in. Now if you're 100% positive that your dealer won't flag your truck, than I could see not returning it to stock. For example, I have found that my local dealer is actually mod friendly, and are willing to help you out if they can.

But once again, to be on the safe side, I would return it to stock. You don't want to lose that warranty

I'd take it back to stock if I thought I was going to be within 200 yards of the dealership.

If it has it installed, it will look like this. Check out this thread. Does this have the Venturi T?

Is your truck a job 1 truck? It looks like it from your avatar. Have you looked into the thermostat TSB, and do you have the Venturi T installed?
