Wow!  I think some new engine mounts would not go astray (or a bloody
great restraining strap for the block) before I dropped in a new radiator.

The way I drive, there is no such thing as braking 'too hard' (well,
brake lockups are not desirable but they generally only hurt tyres and
maybe brakes, they don't send the engine out the front of the car:-) so
I think the radiator is not the only problem you have.
