Default Struts blown, replacing them. Do fresh springs too?

My tockico illuminas are looking pretty rough after 10 years, so I'm looking to replace them. They're currently on a set of eibach springs. Does anyone think I should replace the eibach's with a fresh set? Or will these springs still be good?

Might want some different spring rates.
What are you running now. Was it stiff enough for you?

I am running eibach pro-kit, I've always loved these springs. I just question if they are still safe/peforming well after 10 years of use. Are they?

what are your plans for the car? That will tell you what springs to get. If you just drive it i would say leave them on there.

Slap some ebay agx on there and get some Fatcatmotorsports bumpstops and call it a day.

I thought springs dont really "wear out" as long as they dont rust or anything. I say keep em
