Need Help: How Do I Remove/Replace/Change Rear Shocks on 2005 Pontiac GTO?


I need help replacing my rear shocks. I removed the lining from the trunk, but can't figure out how to remove the rubber dust cover on top of the shock tower.

Can someone give me a quick write up explaining step by step how to replace the shocks, starting from removing the dust cover, and assuming I don't know specific terminology?

Would definitely appreciate that! Thanks
