OK, this is an easy how to ... It should only take 15/20 min to do this from start to finish.

REMOVAL
STEP 1 - Lift and Support the rear of the truck.

STEP 2 - Start at the bottom and remove the bolt & nut holding the shock to the lower shock mount.
You will need a 15mm wrench (bolt) and a 18mm socket (nut)

STEP 3 - Remove the 15mm bolt that holds the shock to the upper mount.

INSTALL
STEP 4 - Start at the top and put the new shock into place. Bolt it in using the 15mm that you removed.

STEP 5 - Place the bottom of the shock into the mount and bolt it back in using the 15mm bolt and 18mm nut that you removed.

I believe the torque specs are 90 ft lbs.

DONE!

Pics are "dead". When you lift the rear of the truck, are you lifting the body or axle? And where are you placing the supports, body or axle?

Use jackstand's in front of the lower control arms, after you jack it up of course , remove wheels , unbolt old shocks and bolt new ones in.
Takes 15-20 minutes max, heck to replace springs and shocks takes 20 max
