Suspension Coil Spring

I intend to replace my rear shocks with Monroe Sensatrac Load-Adjusting Shocks. My question is: do I also replace the suspension coil springs?

The vehicle does not necessarily handle badly, other than sometimes porpoising on the interstate when fully loaded and the back of the van a little low when i hitch the boat.

Do the suspension coil springs have a life span?

Finally, I'm assuming that the rear shocks are an easy replacement. Is that what others have experienced? What about the coil springs, are those easily replaced as well?

I bought the Monroe Sensa-Trac Load Adjusting shock absorbers, and was intending to replace the rear coils while installing them on my 2003 EX-L.

These shocks have a coil spring around the shock body, and they actually cured the minor sag I was experiencing. As well, the roll stiffness was improved, too.

In short, I did not replace the rear coil springs. The Monroe's fixed the sag, and revitalized the handling.
