    I assume your talking about the top two. From what i can see on this pic from my truck it doesn't look too bad, but I'm not sure how similar the '93 Burb and '96 Tahoe are. I say best bet it lots of penetrating oil, a 6 point socket, various extensions and a cheater bar.

    looks pretty similar but on my burban there is nuts and bolts holding the top on and i cant really fit any wrench i have up there on top of the sub frame ....why would they do that??? there is literally only a inch between the sub frame and the body ....im clueless....

    You may have to get a short wrench or have another person help who has smaller hands.

    Common problem on Jeep XJ Cherokees too...

    Look for replacement shock mounts or "bar pin eliminators" or "bpe's".

    Essentially they are a bracket that bolts in to those stock holes and then you can use a traditional shock bolt to mount the top.
