so long as they are the same size engine.they go in from the bottom.(more room) personally never tried from the top.Check the rads mounting tabs,hose locations and overall size.

Worldpac shows same rad 3.6, and 2.4.
Can't think of any reason car would be different any model.
I pull my radiator from the top...

thanks for clearing this up.i got so many (mixed reviews) from parts counter personal to dealers, while looking for info on parts for my car.GM hasn't changed much over the years, yet to purchase parts everything seems year and option one year only

Yep, one car as a concept.
No production units
Not likely going to be a problem for the OP.

I had the radiator out twice over the last month, here is a quick procedure.
Remove shield lower center
Remove shield lh lower front
Drain coolant – slowly
Remove 6 clips across front fascia at top
Remove headlamps – remove 4 screws at top tabs
Pull headlamps forward and slightly up – they wil get jammed at the rear, they might need to be pried forward.
Remove clips (1) at either side of center panel and underneath holding a vertical air dam
Remove clip holding airduct to ecm – clip is under center panel
Remove hood latch, be sure to disconnect harness and cable. You kinda have to do this along with next step. (Note cable routing for later)
Remove center panel by pulling forward then pull the back upward (tabs at back)
Remove clips holding transcooler lines in – remove plastic circles, then use a pick to remove spring clips, then pull lines. (You could do this a little later prefer not critical.) You will lose atf, but not a lot.
Remove two bolts through grill that hold condenser to radiator. Once removed, condenser pushes down.
Detattach cooling fans from radiator – this is a pull up with 4 points of contact – no bolts, just snaps on.
Remove radiator hoses.
Pull up slightly on radiator to release from mounts.
Lean condenser and radiator forward and bring radiator up between fascia and core support.

Notes: when installing, before anything, set radiator down into chassis but not into mounts. Snap trans cooler lines into radiator, be sure that they are secure. More room for hands this way. Then, set into mounts

Ever thought about doing a thermostat? This is a great time.
That T below the coolant tank?, u already have the coolant out, so maybe this is a time to do it.
