I am trying to add a SSL cert for my SBS 03 server (Trying to setup RPC over HTTP) and so I was going through the cert request for GoDaddy. So i went to IIS --> Default Website --> Directory Security --> Server Certificate.

So i went through and hit 'Remove the Current Certificate' and it broke my Exchange! Luckily i went back in there and restored it. Now i am afraid to change it lol.

I just got the new SSL cert from godaddy, do i just go back in there and hit "renew the current certificate"? will it break exchange by doing this?

At 5.15 in the morning? Asleep.
The reason it broke Exchange was probably because of require SSL being in place.
The trick if you need to leave everything in place while you do the request is to create a new web site on the server. Use a different port, but just point it to c:\inetpub\wwwroot, which will be fine. Do the certificate request and response through that.
Once complete, delete the site (as the certificate is now on the server) and go through the wizard on the live site to choose an existing certificate and select the one that you have now bought.

I already did the cert request (i did remove current certificate and it took exchange down lol). Right now i restored the old cert to bring it back up. I do have the new cert from Godaddy ready.

So now in IIS, should i do "renew the current certificate" this time around?

Your response you have from GoDaddy is useless now that you have restored the certificate.
Therefore you will have to follow the instructions I posted above, but instead of requesting a new certificate, request a rekey. Then complete the request with the response from GoDaddy, and remember to install their intermediate certificate as well.
