Default Do I need to replace airbag sensors?

I hit a deer in my 97 GT and airbags deployed... I've got new bags and clock spring and the module, but do I need to replace the 2 sensors on the front end? One looks perfectly fine, the other was pushed back a bit. It only bent the bracket a bit, the sensor looks fine. Also, does anyone know of a good write up for replacing all this?

as long as the sensor isnt broken then it should be fine... i had the bags deploy on my 94 about 2 years ago and i didnt have to replace the sensors, just the airbags and the module. im pretty sure you need a computer to replace the airbags though, because the system has to be reset. i got all the parts for mine and painted them and stuff and took it to a shop for them to plug up the wires and reset the system. They charged like $75 if i remember correctly.

I replaced my airbag monitor because I thought it was faulty, but my air bag light is still on and I am getting 5 beeps and about 3 second delay and then 5 beeps again.
Do I need to reset my system? Can anyone help me?
