Default Radiator replacement

I have two question. How hard is it to change out the radiator in these things. Not a lot of space.

Than we have mismatched tires and the steering wheel is shifting back and forth. If we change out the tires and do a alinement's will this solve the issue. What else could effect the steering and make it pull to the right and vibrate.. I taken it to two shops and got two answer. Tire seem to be my guess but than a motor mount was mention and possible CB Joint. It starts vibrating aback and forth when you reach about 35 miles and than when you let go of the wheel it pulls right.

Radiator is not too bad. Start of by draining it and remove the grill. this will allow the radaitor assembly a little more needed wiggle room, disconnect the hoses and wrestle her out. Put up a cussing jar to deposit coins in for lunch and you should be allright.

Front ends are fairly basic, if tires are questionable replace them, while it is up wiggle the front end components and check for play in tie rod ends, upper and lower ball joints and slop in CV joints. 35 mph has got to be something fairly obvious
