Very simple. I just did this today on my '99. Go to a Chevy dealer and get a recall kit: Part #15939908. It comes with two new cables and two new connecting bolts. (These are for a 2000 Chevy but it should fit yours okay.)
Use a 3/8" drill bit and drill out the existing rivets. Then use the 3/8" bit to enlarge the holes in the brackets where the rivets had been. Now remove the screws holding the mounting brackets into the tailgate. With the brackets loose, you can install the new cables with the new connecting bolts using wrenches. Then just put everything back together and you're set.
It's actually a nice install and if the cables break again, you can easily replace them with wrenches... no stupid rivets!
Unfortunally you can't replace just the cables. They come with the latch assembly and there is a left and right.
You are in luck. GM has a recall on these cables and will replace them for free. Contact your local GM dealer.
A little grease.

Simply remove the cables that support the tailgate. They just clip off. Support your tailgate so that you don't scratch the paint. Lift the tailgate towards vertical, lift and one side will now come off the hinge. Remove the tailgate from the other side by pulling horizontally. Reinstall oppposite to these directions

No, you can replace the grill without removing the radiator.
First you need to remove the trim bezel around the handle on the outside of the tailgate. Then remove the three bolts on the inside of the tailgate,that hold the handle in place. Next remove the latching mechanism rods from the handle,and remove the handle from the tailgate.
