I would replace the sensors as well just to make sure there not damaged. To replace the air bag and module disconnect the battery first, then replace them.

1999 through 2006 have the crash sensors inside the Restraints Control Module, so installing a new module will take care of those.

2001+ have seat belt pretensioners in addition to the airbags. Depending on the severity of the impact, those may have deployed also.
