Default What Radiator

Ok, my radiator leaking. I have a 2008, 2.4 non turbo, automatic transmission, and air conditioning. I went to Rock Auto and they list about 5. All ranging from 55 dollars to 125 dollars. It hard to see the difference from the 55 dollar one to the 125 dollar one. Other than maybe a thicker core. Can anybody tell me which one I should use?

I have a 2005 non turbo and I used a Spectra radiator - about 45K miles ago. Have not had any cooling issues since. The spectra was an exact fit

I put a Spectra CU2298 in my 2002 Base 5 speed last year and it fit well and cools just fine. Had the trans cooler in it, which I didn't need. Was over 100* here several times and cooled with the A/C on with no issues. I got it off E/Bay for under $75 shipped to Mi.
