Type of radiator hose?

Upgrading my radiator here in a few weeks and plan on redoing all of the hoses as well. Just wondering if there's a good brand of hose to get like that blue Goodyear stuff or something similar, and where to get it.

I recommend you get hoses from the dealer. I replaced my stock radiator and went to 3 different autopart stores to buy hoses (upper and lower). ALL the hoses were cheaper and didnt fit as well as the OEM hoses. You might get by using a aftermarket upper hose but for the lower hose its best to buy it from the dealer since it has a spring inside of it and a aftermarket lower hose is a lot smaller and thinner than the OEM. The dealer hoses are only like 10 bucks more, but I think its worth it.

um how about you take the spring out of the old and put it in the new . I got some good year ones and they seem to be very good quality. also while your changing the houses, get new house clamps. Get the ones that you screw to tighten, they work alot better and are easier to get on and off if you ever need to change anything
