That linked 3Row AllAluminum Radiator looks right,
but the Amazon listing does not note the Core dimensions, only the overall dimensions.
Try contacting the Vendor to confirm before buying; I'd find another vendor with better dimensions listed.
Some vendor listings are more complete\descriptive than others.
Those pics show the Drain WITHOUT a petcock; not good; should be a Brass PetCock there.
May need a larger SAEA RadiatorCap; may also need to modify TransCooler compression fittings.
Your radiator should be same as whats in my 2001 SportTracJob2;

For Coolant system, if
Hoses+Clamps+HeatValve+Pump+Fan+FanClutch+BeltTensioner are 10yrs\100kMiles+ old,
ThermoStat + RadCap + SerpBelt are 3yrs\33Miles+ old,
consider changing those while radiator is out & system is drained.
If your ST was factory fitted with a 5/16"ID PCVValve Warming loop & associated fittings
(runs parallel with Heater loop), I'd abandon\delete that useless item while doing above items & replace those custom factory Heater hoses with store stock 5/8"ID hose.
