Default shocks on 89 SSE

ok, so in need of front shocks. With other pressing $$ concerns, can I get away with just replacing the shock itself and keeping the strut and coil spring? Thinking of going with monroe sensa tracs, like I have in the rear. Shock absorber warehouse has the sensatracs assembly includ. new shock, spring, and strut for $215 each. Just the shock is $62 each. The car is riding very poorly lately, bottoms out and vibrates and shakes over rough roads, so I have to do it soon. I think based on codes in trunk I have the luxury suspension set up. Thanks.

I am pretty sure you can keep your springs and just change out the struts....also I have seen new struts with spring for less than $150 each on Ebay....good luck
