Ok all antifreeze must be mixed otherwise it will not do its job as well. So with that you get straight antifreeze and mix it 50/50 yourself or buy it premixed. As for the impala if the upper hose is swelling then I must ask how old is the hose. If it is really old then replace it. The upper hose if all is working correctly should be about 30 degrees warmer then the lower hose once at operating temp.
