1st Gen Rear Bilstein 5100's Installation

I searched the threads but could not find a specific answer for my question. I am getting ready to install a set of rear Bilstein 5100's for my 2001 Tacoma. The rear shocks out of the box have a dust cover installed over the piston rod. So my question is which way do the shocks install, rod and cover to the top attachment point or to the bottom attachment point?
