Yes, changing out the springs is necessary.

Aside from simply matching the springs to the appropriate dampers, the Ti springs should have a higher spring rate that enhances the handling past just a simple shock and strut replacement.

You're tearing the suspension apart anyway... why not replace them? IIRC, I don't think they're even that expensive.
