you have to unscrew the bleeder vavle with the car on and wait intil the fluid runs though it and then tighten and it should be fixed

Check out this link... better than a diagram, a photo.
note: on my screen this guy's "purple" circle looks more like a light blue, maybe lavender.

They are not difficult to do if you have the right tools or you buy the right struts. If you buy the quick strut like Advance has it is just taking bolts off. If you are only replacing the strut itself you will need a tool to compress the spring in order to replace the strut cartridge.
In the truck you will find 2 or 3 usually 13 mm nuts. Remove the wheel and up two of the lug nuts back on the drum. put a floor jack under the drum to take the tension off the strut. remove the nuts in the trunk and the bolt at the base of the strut assembly. carefully lower the floor jack and remove the strut assembly. If you don't have the spring compressor take the assembly to a shop and pay them to do it. If they are decent they won't charge more than 10-15 each.
It will be easier if you have someone hold the new strut assembly up in place while you go into the trunk and figure tighten the nuts. use the floor jack to raise the suspension up to the strut and replace the lower bolt. Tighten everything up to specs and replace the wheel. When you are done it is imperative you have the car aligned. You don't want ot chew up your back tires because it is out of align as it always is after replacing struts. (you move the struts to align)
Hope this helps
