Hello,

My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will use all of the available technical information at my disposal to assist you with your vehicle concern.

 

I have many clients today that have cash flow issues due to the economic down turn, so I have adjusted my repairs to include after market parts so fit budgets. What I do is make sure they also come with good warranties so me and he client are protected.

 

So, if your shop can guarantee a decent warranty, then there should not be an issue. As far as the radiator, see if your shop deals with KeyStone. They supply body shops and repair shops with Insurance authorized replacement parts. Every Radiator I have received from KetStone had been a direct fit, and $100's less than the manufacture and parts stores.

 

As far as the oil cooler, best bet is the Delco part.

 

I hope my info helped. Oh, when doing a radiator, replace the thermostat, radiator cap and verify that all the hoses are good.

 

Scott.
