Hi, Greg here welcome to the forums. Um when you take out the old shocks and struts from the car the shocks are held on the top by a strut mount and strut bushing and the shock itself has to be unscrewed from the strut housing. It is a big nut where the shock meets the strut housing that needs to be loosened and the shock should slide out if the housing and do the reverse when installing the new shocks!
