Default Coilover info

As you may have read in the weekend thread, I had a ball-joint come apart on my '56. I have decided to go through the entire front suspension with a very critical eye to see if anything else looks amiss. I think, while I have everything apart, I'll replace the coil springs and stock shocks with coilovers. I hate to spend $600-800+ for them, but that's the going rate for two double adjustable shocks with Torrington bearings and a spanner wrench, as far as I can tell. Is double adjustability something I need for spirited street driving? I understand the concept, just have no experience with coilovers at all.
