Not 100% but i dont think you would need to. The reason people have to get upper spring seats and insulators is to make the spring sit right. But since the spring already has a top plate, and the 01-02 cougar suspension has a flat upper spring seat, it should fit nicely. Im sure one of the suspension guru's will chime in shortly.
