Local auto part stores have spectre rads for $230 w lifetime warranty. Chevy dealer has OEM rad for $270 w one year warranty. I know online is cheaper but can't really wait for shipping. Your thoughts?

I would do OEM. I would make sure that's the Genuine GM, not an ACDelco aftermarket radiator.

Normally i'd say OEM also... but why do you need a replacment? Is there something inherently wrong with the OEM? or maybe they've fixed the issue...

Or it was just a fluke then yea i'd go OEM.

I just had the choice between a Spectre radiator - made in Canada for $130. GM OEM is made in China and $270. Guess which one I bought?

Both will work - I'd trust OEM made in China than aftermarket China - but sometimes that isn't the case.
