Obviously if you have an auto trans you need the radiator with the in-tank ATF cooler. Sometimes the aftermarket ones are more of a 'general' fit that might not quite match exactly what is in there now, such as with regard to getting the fans to mount properly, etc.

buy from radiator barn, quick shipping, right fit, 2 day delivery
That was not my experience with radiator barn. There website said i should get it in two days.
After four days i called to see if i could get a tracking number, they acted really put out to get it, but they did. it ended up taking a full five days after i ordered it. Fine, sometimes things get delayed, but there was no reason for them to be rude.

I got one for my 99 at advanced auto and had the same question come up. They had the no sensor version in stock and that was correct for my car. Quality seemed OK and it went right in.
Thanks, good info. I checked other on line sources for radiators. All listed just one type, not two, with no reference to sensor fittings. Since I can't find any sensors on my radiator, and you bought the unit with no sensors, then I have to think the Advance Auto product listing is incorrect. No sensor unit must be correct.

So for '96 radiator barn seems good, yes like $80 shipped. Advanceauto is like $129.
'94 is like $150 at radiator barn but I see advanceauto has one for like $127, then right now they have the 15% off, free shipping, plus a $25 coupon for a future purchase, so that should work.
eta, decided to go with two vista-pro 432536 rads from rockauto, listed at $90 each, SummitRacing price was like $127 for the same rad. Rockauto shows it will fit both applications so hopefully that will work.
