I've never heard of collapsed hoses,
between that and the overflowing issue you were talking about at the RTE it sure sounds like you've got an obstruction or a venting issue,
the radiator cap is a good start, replacing the thermostat couldn't hurt.
Before spending any $$$ I'd suggest looking for a pinched vent hose also.
If you get into it any deeper than that, keep in mind I've got both radiators, fans, overflow reservoir and even hoses of my 2002 (30 thousand miles) laying in the shed.
If you're installing an XM Roady,
I've also got a couple of other pieces of my 02 you could save a couple of bucks on.
