Default Where to get rubber Radiator Hose + Clamps?

My upper radiator hose makes a nasty cracking sound when I squeeze it and I'd like to replace both upper and lower hoses since the radiator is already off the car.

I tried Autozone, and they don't carry the hoses even though there are tons hanging up for the domestic cars. I'd like to avoid spending $100 on silicone ones when the stockers lasted 100k miles so far without failure. I'd like to replace the clamps since mine are fairly rusted as well.

Also, is it necessary to replace the thermostat gasket when replacing that as well?

For a clamp... you could just hit autozone or the like for generic clamps. I don't believe the OE type is necessary.

Tallahassee eh? What made you move there? I spent 8 years in that flat, humid wasteland and will NEVER move back!

I soaked the stock ones in PB Blaster overnight and I think they're good to go.

they only sell the hoses around here (NC) at dealers /did this a few days ago/, the old clamps will most likely leak once you re-use them. i used those screw tight clamps and forget about them ever leaking.
