Default Help finding hard to find parts - Radiator support etc.

I'm trying to find vendors (other than the stealership) for frame related parts, i.e. radiator support etc. My wife managed to get the front end ripped off, and the forward most frame posts are bent, but the alignment isn't effected. I'm replacing the radiator, a/c condensor, hood, grill and bumper among other things. I've been looking online, but can't find the not so popular parts. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Any help would be appreciated! TIA

I can see how you might not want to pay this much for the front pieces...

LC11-53-100B (upper support, left and right panel shroud, lower crossmember and brackets) - $373.05
LB82-52-150B (lock stay) - $35.73
BV14-19-9S0 (blind cover for non-towing equipped MPV's) - $22.88

But then again, you're going to do an awful lot of searching for an MPV which doesn't have front end damage.

Default Thanks a bunch, that definately helps....

the radiator it appears does 2 functions, one would be cooling the engine, however when I removed the old radiator, there are 2 lines on the bottom, and the fluid was different. Is it safe to think that it's auto-transmission fluid or something else? I'm not sure. thanks.

Yes it is automatic transmission fluid. Oil cooler for auto trans is part of the radiator. Virtually any aftermarket usually comes with oil cooler as part of replacement radiator.
