Questions regarding Steering damper

I just purchased a front skid plate from British Pacific. In order to mount the brackets I need to disconnect the steering damper and then re-install it through a hole in the bracket. Of course neither of the shop manuals I have has a single word about the damper. Can anyone tell me how difficult it is to remove and refit the damper? It looks like a shock or strut so I assume some force will be required to compress it. Any advice will be appreciated.

Mark, it is a shock but it is not under any pressure. Just unbolt it and compress it by hand. Very easy.
