Default Reference for strut replacement

Hello all - new to the board, first post.
I took my '11 1500 Laramie (4WD) to have Bilstein 5100s installed in all four corners - the shop called me and reported that they can't take the spring seat off the OEM strut because it is blocked by a cap/nut that prevents it from sliding off the cartridge tube. And the there's a sticker that says "DO NOT DISASSEMBLE", so the tech is afraid the internal pressure in the strut will be released and countless thousands will die in the resulting explosion if he removes the cap.
I know this is silly, and found posts detailing the removal of the cap. But they won't finish the job without an official reference - and I have one shoulder in stitches, can't do the job myself.
Can someone point me to a site or resource that references removal of the spring perch on the front struts? Great board, BTW - and thanks in advance!
