Xi Front springs often need replacement?

I'm fed up with my H&R, bilstein sport combination on my Xi. The ride was awful before and it's almost just as bad now. I just replaced the fcabs and rtabs and the ride is better but still too harsh. Thinking about returning to the stock setup.

I plan on buying new rear springs (seems like a common failure item), but should I go ahead and buy new front ones too? Or can I save a few bucks and reuse the old ones in the front? New OEM springs ain't cheap (like everything else on this car).

Any other advice for getting back to the factory, soft ride? I cringe every time I go over a bump and it's starting to really get on my nerves considering how much DIY time I put in . thanks
