Cracked radiator

So last night driving I noticed on my dash my coolant level was hot and my rmps were bouncing up and down. Popped the hood and smoke started coming out the passanger side radiator and it was leaking. So have to replace it and will go ahead and replace a leaking steering fluid hose as well. Any tips on the removing and installing it or is it straight forward.

Unhappy

It should be pretty straight forward. Thermostat is inside the housing on the engine where the upper radiator hose connects to the engine.
