Recently had radiator replaced along with hoses and heater hose. Runs fine and does not over heat, but noticed drips some anti freeze still, what may be the problem? Thanks

How long ago was it replaced? There could be some residual coolant on the frame or undercarriage. Or, if it is a leak, I would take it back to get inspected. It could be the water pump leaking if the leak is behind the left front wheel. Park the car on a piece of clean cardboard over night. This will allow you to determine the location of the leak and to show your technician, too.

Make sure all hoses are tight, make sure the water pump isn't leaking from its weep hole. If you can't find a leak, they make a dye you can mix with the coolant. Drive the vehicle and then using a black light, look for the leak. They dye will glow.
