Default Rad replacement

Hello everyone this is my first post shame it has to be about a repair LOL. The radiator just went bad (leaking were the tank meets the core) on my 96 SE I see there are two available. Living in Florida I was thinking of getting the one with the built in oil cooler because the advertised dimensions are 3/8s of an inch thicker. Does anyone know if this will this bolt right in or do i need to modify any mounts? Also.. Since I wont be using the oil cooler are there any adverse affects of leaving those unused? I dont see how but I figured I would ask. I need to get this fixed by this Sunday (Sept 2 Im new to the Bonneville thing and love my car so I am sure I will be a regular here soon. Thanks for any input

The oil cooler vs non-oil cooled will both fit perfectly. You may want to cap the holes for the oil cooler lines for good measure, but it isn't necessary.

Another thicker core may be found by searching a 93 Caddy Deville with the 4.9L motor. All the same dimensions as your car.

Ha.. would you believe AZ has the same part number listed for the 93 Deville as the 96 Bonneville with the oil cooler.. yeah you probably would. I'm a big Mustang fan and I cross parts for that all the time. Thanks for the help it came in handy!
