1998 Volvo S70 GLT, Strut Replacement Sign In

I want to replace the front struts on this car. Terrible ride quality and lots of noise. I can't be sure but I suspect the struts on the car are original. The shop I am considering using says that only the strut itself and the spring seat need to be replaced and they want $750 for this job.

What I would like to know is if other parts of the assembly (strut mount with bearing, bellows, bump stop etc) should be replaced as well. I just want to be confident that once repaired I'm good for the expected 100,000 miles.

Thank you, I greatly appreciate any feedback.

The car is 19 years old. It wouldn't be surprising for the mounts to be bad also.
