I'm new to this forum, but not to the camaro world.
I have a 98/95 hybrid. 98 (LS1) z28 drive train (MT) in a 95 v6 (AT) body

my radiator just cracked on the side and im not sure what car i got the radiator from.
I've read that the 3.8L v6 radiator can be used for an LT1 and LS1. im pretty sure the radiator that i have is from an LT1. will all of these radiators be ok to use?: from the 3.8, the LT1, or the LS1.
thanks guys!

Go w/ an LT1 Radiator. Cools better and hooks up just the same except for an extra spot for a hose at the bottom. You can just put a piece of hose on it and plug it and then you have a great spot to drain coolant in the future.

Yup.....makes for a great flush line. Just plug it with a brass fitting and clamp it.

LT1 radiator cools a little bit better and like "Disaster" installs 100% the same, you won't know the difference in the installation.

If one of your local autoparts stores has competent employees, they should be able to tell you.
