I am probably not going to get started on this for a while, unless I sweet talk somebody with a garage into letting me use theirs. I lam in the interior of Alaska, and although it is only about -15 F right now, it has been -40 for a week, and working on cars in this kind of weather is awful and silly

i wouldn't mess with springs without the proper compressor. Safety on springs is a very real concern and can easily bite you. even if safety wasn't an issue it makes things so much easier you wont want to do it another way.
if you can find springs then I would replace them. springs are wearable items but are rarely replaced so with 200k on it you would probably notice a difference. I wouldn't say move heaven and earth to find them though, they don't really wear completely out, but you get a better ride with ones that are fresher.
