Do I Need Dust Caps?

k so iv been really confused on weather i shoulc put dust caps on my new shocks or not, alot of people tell me it prevent the shocks from leaking in the future.

So i went to honda and orderd dust caps for the front and rear, 2 of them are plastic and the other 2 are metal-ish, makes no sense how it goes on...

now the question is, do i need them? or should i just return them?

what else should i put in besides the springs and the mounts?
