Radiators

Howdy All,
Where have y'all gotten your radiators from? Online or a local parts store, and what did you pay? If you are in the D/FW area which parts store? Mine has begun to leak like a seive and needs to be replaced. Will be doing the coolant filter mod and oil cooler repair as well, looks like someone will be busy .

You can also consider taking it in to a good rad shop and haveing it rebuilt, they can add more core to it as well, if thats what you want. Save some $ that way.

Hey Gord,
Is that what I tell them "to add more core to the radiator"? Obviously having it rebuilt will fix my leak problems, but what does adding to the core do? Help with cooling? Will check around on Wednesday (my next day off).
Thanks,
Craig

It gives your cooling system a larger capacity and more surface area to make it more efficient. And to tell you the truth it has been YEARS since I bought a radiator, always have them rebuild by a local rad. shop here that does amazing work and it usually runs around 1/2 the price of new and I think they produce a better product that the boxed units do but that really depends on the shop doing the work.
