I was quoted about $120 to replace the water pump and mounting gaskets. Are there any better prices anywhere else? Or does anyone have any recommendations of a good replacement? I know this is a rather important piece and I need to get it replaced ASAP, so any answers would be appreciated. Thank you!

P.S. as seen on the left, I've an '02 Base V6,

And if I may ask: http://www.partsgeek...water_pump.html
I know it's cheap, and I'd rather not get a really cheap piece, but they're asking $20!? for the V6 water pumps on average? If those are a suitable replacement and something you guys would recommend, that'd be great. I do plan on keeping this 'bird for a little while longer, but I'm currently on the lookout for an LS1 TA or Formula.

Doesn't sound too farfetched, I paid about $32 for mine when it came time to replace it.

Okay, I'll go ahead and order it. I found another for around your price ($30) and it's gotten better reviews. I'll go ahead and order it today (comes with the gasket mounts too) and some new coolant, and I'll probably fix it up next weekend. I'll post updates as the part comes in.
