Do I Need new grommets/brackets for my radiator?

I can't find this anywhere, but my 98's radiator is pretty wobbly at the top, the bottom doesn't move. I'm wondering if this has contributed to the demise of my cooling fans. There's a lot of space in the grommets in the brackets which are what stop it from moving any further. I don't know, is it supposed to be like that? I'm searching all over for maxima radiator grommet or maxima radiator bracket and I don't find anything.

You know I can't find radiator bushings anywhere not a single mention, that's why I'm asking if they even exist or you have to buy the whole bracket from Nissan, and if it's in fact not supposed to have movement built into it.

cut some rubber padding its the same thing but your radiator is fine moving a little bit, no damage can be caused from this so why bother?

i'm telling you they do, because i replaced mine. There are 2 little brackets with rubber bushings that hold the radiator in place at the top. You can buy those rubber bushings and pop them in place of the old ones. the dealership has them.

Isn't this like when you ask a customer service rep a question and they don't know the answer so they just answer some question you didn't ask?

dude...it doesnt matter for starters. what? your radiator moves 3/4 of an inch making your coolant shaken instead of stirred. coolant dont like that ****?

also, think about it. the engine moves....alot. especially on a fwd car it pulls back. the engine has radiator hoses which go to the engine, if the radiator was put solid and had no play, it would pull and stretch the hoses and they would split. (SEE: EXHAUST SYSTEM FLEX SECTIONS for more information) see where im going with this? its normal, relax. spend your money on some double cheeseburgers instead of radiator mounting grommets and its all good.

Man, how hard is it to get a simple straight answer in here now. If you know, if they're supposed to be like that or not then say something, otherwise go f--k yourself and your wigger speech.
