Where to buy my new radiator for my 05

I have been looking online for a new radiator and there is a fairly large gap in the price range:

Auto Zone: $317
Napa: $314
GM: Too much
GO-PART.COM: $199
Others: ???

Part number: 2987

For those who have purchased new radiators where did you go?

Any suggestions?
Thanks

when my radiator died, i found a local place with flawless reviews on yelp, took a chance on them and had them do it, i'm useless hands-on with my cars though. $400 all in so the radiator itself can't have been too much more than what you're being quoted and they did a great job. sometimes a reliable local place once you find it is worth it's weight in gold.

There is a pretty extensive thread about radiator choices @;
Radiator Replacement options? - LS1TECH

Some of the cheaper aluminum radiators have lifetime warranties. I would tend to go with an aluminum as opposed to a plastic.

Try autopartswarehouse.com. I have a Silla brand radiator and it has served my well thus far. With a coupon code, you should be able to pick one up for less than $150 shipped.
