Schock Related Question

I'm about to replace the front shocks on my 2003 Excursion, I was looking at the set up last night and it looks pretty straight forward, looking at the top portion it appears that my truck has a long dust cover ( I'm not sure if that's the correct name) which is attached by what appears rubber taps or rubber screws, I try to remove one and I can tell already that they are going to break.

How do you remove them without breaking them? Do you replace them? I don't see any other way to get to the upper shock nut without removing this cover.

Below is a photo of the cover in question.

thanks in advance

That doesn't look like a Excursion.. as it has the coil sprung front end, did you swap the front end with a truck?. All excursion came from factory with leaf spring fronts. any how you would either remove those top nuts from the engine compartment or pull the plastic fender liner .. the fender retainers may be like plastic rivnuts.. earlier trucks have tiny screws...

Ah 2wd, I've never seen one up close. My BAD. Sorry. As for fitment, you may need to play with it. most shocks don't include detailed instructions etc.. you compress the shocks a few times before install. You Excursion looks really clean , nice find.
Thanks,
Deo
