Help on front struts.

When you replace the shocks and struts I know the rear need new gaskets but do the front struts have/need new gaskets?

Not in the front, probably because the engine bay doesn't need to be as weather proof as the trunk.

You may want to replace the front strut mounts (guide bearing) if they're worn: Replacing front struts, which parts?.
