shock ends?

On my rc18mt i bent a drive shaft. I tried to replace it but i cant get the end off to take the rod out. Im talking about the black part that connects it to the car. Is there like a trick? Also i need to know how to put them back on for when im trying to finish the job. Any help please?

Are you talking about the linkage rod (ball and cup connection)? If so, roll the cup to one side of the ball, then use needlenose pliers on the area where the cup screws into the turnbuckle rod and twist in the direction you rolled the cup. It should pop off. When you reassemble it, just put your pliers on one side of the axle upright opposite of the ball, and on the cup. Then just squeeze together. If you remove/replace the rod ends several times, they will get loose, and you'll eventually have to replace them. It's the nature of the beast.
A long-term solution, is to replace the ball ends with DuBro screw on linkage ends. You'll need 2/56 size, and may have to cut down the length of the trheaded part.
Hope this helps.

I'm not familiar with those particular shocks, but maybe this will help:
