Question 1997 Allegro shocks

Trying to change rear shocks, removing old Bilstiens and replacing with Monroe RV gas shocks. Anyone have a diagram of the top portion where the old shock was attached? Is there a sleeve that must be removed? How do I remove it? The new shocks will not fit without removing this "sleeve." It appears to be part of the the frame, can I remove this? It looks like it is a threaded stud, but I am not sure. Thanks

What chassis are we talking about? I'm guessing a Ford gas engine chassis? Any chance you could post a picture? I'm not aware of any "sleeve" in the shock mount, but without the chassis specifics it's hard to guess.

It is a Chevy gas engine and yes there was a sleeve. Finally got all 4 shocks on with temperatures reaching 103 degrees on the local thermometer. Ready to go find a cooler spot. Thanks for your response.
