Squeeze the metal clip and it should pop right off.

When switching to the Monroe's do I need a special adapter of any sort. Are they bolt on and go?

If you got the Monroe MA822 Max Air's, they should be a direct fit.

AAP and AutoZone suggested getting an air hose adapter kit when I purchased my Monroe MaxAirs, so I purchased it. I found it to be completely unnecessary, and wound up taking it back after installing my shocks.

Many here at the Club suggest replacing your rear shock mounts with Moog mounts whenever you replace your shocks. I did this myself a few months ago. It was not a difficult procedure. Replacing the mounts is very easy when you have the shocks off, as you have already done 90% of the work at that point.

There are cheaper brands than Moog, but they supposedly fail quickly. Moog apparently lasts.

Mounts (Moog at least) are sold individually, so you will need two. Left/right sides are the same part.
