Yes. Over time the springs will start to sag and should be replaced in pairs.

Re: 02 Mountaineer Coil Springs

Verify with a dealer that there isn't a recall on the springs/suspension. I had a broken front spring on my '99 Taurus that was covered under warranty. Even though I've owned the car since new, Ford never bothered to send me a letter or any type of notification. Perhaps that's in part to doing my own maintenance the last several years! Otherwise, as mentioned, replace all suspension components in pairs, springs, shocks, struts, etc.
