All use strut / coil assemblies on the front.

I think the station wagons use shocks (at least my 1987 Taurus wagon did IF I recall correctly).

What parts do you need to fix your shocks and struts on a 01 4 door civic ex?

First, get new shocks and struts...on that vehicle, not entirely sure, but probably struts in front and back, no shocks. Check for coil springs in rear. If rear springs are coil, then struts. If rear springs are leaf, then shocks. While you're at the parts store, rent or borrow a coil spring compression tool. You'll need to compress the coil springs to remove/reinstall new struts. Other than the compression tool, standard garage mechanics tools will do the job.

How do you know if you need either new shocks or struts?

Try a simple test. Push your car or vehicle with a substantial force downwards, towards the ground. Do this by pushing the hood down or the drunk down. If your car bounces fast and did it like a spring. You need new shocks or struts. This will affect your riding comfort. Some manufacturers specify to change the struts or shocks every 75,000 miles.
