You may want to have the radiator flow and ability to cool off the coolant tested by using a infrared gun.It is a modern way of testing the tempature at the top of the radiator and then testing the temp at the middle and then bottom of the radiator to compare the difference.
This will give you a idea of the radiators condition rather than taking it out and replacing it when it still may be ok.You can also point the infrared gun at other points of the engine to check for differences in heat. It works greaty for catalytic converters and many other automotive uses.
Hope this helps
