Default Rear 2002 SE springs

Six months ago I found a broken front spring. I had new front struts put on it. The car'* 8 years old and has 130,000 mi. Now the front of the car sits higher than the back. Bright'* oncoming traffic, expecially if someone'* in the back seat.

I've got new shocks for the rear (never changed before) and was wondering if it makes any sense to replace the rear springs. I would think this should make the car sit and ride like new again.

Haynes manual says I need to detach the suspension adjustment link from the control arm in order to let the spring out. Anybody replaced the rear springs before? I've got a 3 jaw puller, will that work to detach the adjustment link.

I've got the shocks already but I'm still thinking about the springs. Price for springs is $105.

Any thoughts?
