Don't waste your time

Just skip those and install the updated fuel pressure regulator spring.

How to replace the fuel pressure regulator spring, with pictures

The updated fuel pressure regulator for sale online at Tousley Ford
If you call them instead, you can order part number 6E7Z-9C165-B instead. It would save you a couple of bucks, and does not come with the fuel pressure regulator cover (you won't need it).

The spring is available in two different kits. One that has the regulator cover and one that does not.
The one that does not is cheaper, but Tousley does not list that one on their website. I recommend getting it through Tousley, since they sell parts at 10% over dealer cost.

The stock spring is known to allow your fuel pressure to fall. It weakens over time. Have your fuel pressure fall below 45 psi and you are buying new injectors.

That is a really good question and have to say that it depends. The new spring is stiffer, resulting in a higher pressure to begin with. The new spring will give you very close to 70psi.
The best thing to do would be to add a fuel pressure gauge and keep an eye on it.
