it's pretty easy. take a bolt off, take a rubber mallet and hit it off the bushing, replace bushings and put new shock on.

On a 10-year old truck, the bolts won't come out as easily as shown in the video. Spray the bolts down with PBlaster and leave overnight before attempting. Use new bolts when installing the new shocks.

Also do the final torquing while the truck is sitting on its springs, not while jacked up. This prevents the bushings from squeaking.
