Shocks and springs

I just purchased a 2000 Montero Sport 4wd automatic and was hoping to make it a little smoother of a ride for the bumpy dirt road I live on. Shocks and springs are original.

Do I need to change both or can you just change one or the other on a Montero? Any recommendations on what are a good set to go with (I'm not going to be doing a lot of off roaming or anything, but I do live up a 5mile dirt road that is pretty bumpy)?

    If the shocks are original they're probably worn out. Stock replacements would probably help a lot. No need to do springs unless they're sagging. I like KYB (probably what it came with), and Bilstein (premium, 2X$). Check rockauto and tire rack.
