to change the oil, generally you will pull the top nut off, this exposes the reservoir.

to install the shock covers, unscrew the upper and lower shock screws, that will get it off to install the mount the easiest. a lot of the outerwears have velcro on them, so you may not need to remove the shock to install them

Download the above manual for a complete build guide to the Hpi Baja 5b SS, this will give you every Hpi based part of the truck/buggy

Shocks are on pages 52 through 57, and shows great detail on building and oiling the shocks much better than I can explain.

For you outerwares, what type do you have?

The ones you linked are very easy to install, they are velcroed to gether , so it is a simple matter of just wrapping them around the shock and pressing the 2 ends together.

They also have elastic at each end to keep them snug on the shock.
