E150 CONVERSION FAN FRONT SUSPENSION

2000 Ford E-Series Van

2000 Ford E150 5.4 Liter SOC Conversion Van, 80,000 miles

My van has 80,000 miles on it and I have notice that the ride has been detiorating lately. I figured it was time to replace the shock absorbers. After inspectiing the front end, I found that there are no shocks or struts installed. Only coil springs.

Question: Is this normal to have this setup, I have never seen an arrangement will no damping device? Coil springs only.
Question: Can shocks\struts been added to improve the ride. I see that there are shocks installed on the rear axle.
