E 450 rear shocks

What needs to be done to gain access(remove or cut away heat shield) to rear shocks for replacement?Can you replace the heat shield with other material that would serve the same purpose?This is on a Thor Siesta Class C. Thanks for any help and ideas...it's appreciated !!

On my Vegas ( E350 chassis, but should be the same), I managed to change the shocks without doing anything to the heat shields. I went in with a wrench from the rear wheelhouse to the top nut , and turned the the shock from the bottom ,upper nut. Not easy, but can be done.
