1995 V6 Mustang - Replaced Radiator - Still Have a Coolant Leak

Just replaced my radiator. All hoses and fittings are tight. Have a drip of anitfreeze still. Looked like it was comming from my condensor? Can it come from m condensor and why? Have had a below freezing month. Im going to buy a condensor. But can antifreeze leak from them?

No. Condenser has no interaction with the cooling system at all. You must have a leak elsewhere, possibly the rad you installed was defective. Don't waste the money on a condenser for a rad leak.

If your condensor is leaking then it it is possible that it is a marker dye that was previously put in it to identify any freon leaks. That could possibly be confused with antifreeze.
As the previous reply stated there is no physical or working connection between your cooling system and airconditioning systems.

Excellent point, the marker dye is florescent green too.
