Best place for new radiator?

It looks like mine is leaking where the lower hose connects to the bottom outlet of the radiator. I put in a new lower hose and I even double clamped it, but it still has a slow drip. Is it possible that I have a hairline crack at the bottom of the radiator? If so I'll be looking to get a new one. Looking for best price and place on a new one, thanks.

I bought my chevy conversion radiator from racewayparts.com it was a custom order. I ordered it one day they built it the same day and shipped it the next. $270 for a 4 core was the best price I found

You could probably get it fixed fairly cheap at a local radiator shop. I went from the 2 to 3 core with this one.

Thanks guys, I ended up getting a 3 core one at Autozone for $180. Seems great quality and fit in good with no more leaks.
