Default A/C fan motor

I posted in the WTB section that I need a new A/C fan motor. Before I buy one tell me what I should do.

1. Replace the fan motor
2. Replace the fan assembly
3. Replace both fans with one big one ( where should I get one, how big and how many CFM's?)

Between 1 and 2 which would be cheaper?

Thanx guys.

P.S. I dont have A/C and probably wont be fixing it.

Just ran out and shot some. I have some of the "L" shaped clips that slide in for mounting through the rad, but I don't know how many. I'll have to look. I personally try not to use them with fans since it's pretty much using the rows to support the load. I used the fan briefly on my swap, but it was too thick to use with a sway bar since my mounts are forward 1-1/2" of the stock location. - rob
