water pump replacement options...

I'm about half way through removing the old one. I've been slowly leaking coolant for about two weeks now. I guess I should have done the pump when I changed the radiotor and hoses in the spring. Anyway, does anyone have any prefs for water pumps? I'll end up getting it at a chain parts store (autozone, advance, car quest, napa). I'm leaning towards the Autozone Duralast brand since its new and not remanufactured, plus it comes with a lifetime warranty. Anybody experience problems with these? I think Advance has the Cardone brand (new $40 or reman $19). I'm going for a new one over reman.

I don't want to sink the money into a high flow pump. Saving money for a SYE and driveshaft.

Get a new one, don't matter if it's advance or autozone both have lifetime warranty.
