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?

Get a spring compresser, it just might save your life. Those springs hold a lot of energy and if one is extended or compressed and then lets lose, it is basically, a projectile.
