98 Taurus SE - Time for new shocks?

I have a 1998 Taurus SE 6 cyl dohc, with 71k miles.

I'm assuming that it's time for new shocks, when going over bumps it sounds like the car is bottoming out. What is the likelihood of needing new struts as well?

What is a reasonable price for new shocks and the labor to replace? What is reasonable for new struts and labor to replace?

This vehicle has struts all the way around to my knowledge.

Now's a good time to look at the springs at the same time the struts are changed---it would be the cost of the spring since you're paying the labor to remove the spring when you do the strut anyhow.

Cost varies. Most shops get 75 an hour.
