REMOVING FRONT SHOCKS PROBLEM

1986 Nissan 300ZX

Suspension problem
1986 Nissan 300ZX 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual

I have a 1986 300zx Turbo that I'm trying to change the front suspension shocks on. I've removed all bolts and the spring from the upper area, and as far as I can see there are no bolts holding it in place at the bottom. Yet, I still cannot pull the shocks out. I don't know if I'm missing something, or if it's just that they're the same shocks from when the car was made(adjustable ride) and they're seized in there. The guy at the auto parts store I went to told me that the ones in that car are not removable, which I'm far from believing. I have new shocks to put in, and they have no connections at the bottom that need to be bolted, so, any tips or information on how to get it out? Thank you.
