    yes you should change them, they help direct cooling air towards the brake rotors as well as protecting them from road debri, you should be able to change them yourself, remember to block the front wheels before starting if your doing this on the ground, because you'll have to have the truck in nutural with at least one rear wheel off the ground, then remove brake caliper, rotor and caliper saddle, remove rear diff. inspection cover and rotate to find cross bolt, remove, then slide pin out, push axle shaft inwards slightly, use magnet to remove locking C clip, then slide axle out, take care to not turn the axle as well, you should probably change the axle seal while your there.
