Radiator Leak - Need Advice

I had my '96 3.8L in the shop today to install my new MN12Performance engine and transmission mounts. While I was under the car, I noticed that my radiator is leaking pretty good about 1-2 inches under the lower radiator hose.

I'm assuming I have to replace the radiator. Should I go stock or does everyone have a primo radiator I should consider buying?

Please help!!

I bought a Modine radiator for 140$ from a Modine distributor for my 96' Its IDENTICAL to the factory one (which is made by modine) Ford wanted over 200$ for the same radiator. I'm willing to bet that yours is leaking between the plastic tank and the radiator core, Mine did.

Thank You!

Thank you, Rancherlee!

Yes, you are probably correct and it is leaking between the tank and the core. Has anyone had experience with www.radiator.com? Their warehouse is near me and they have a lifetime guarantee. Also, $137 for the radiator.
