Trunk strut replacement from Autozone
Written by goldwingman40 on 8/12/2010 at 02:54 pm

The gas shock is almost horizontal when the trunk is closed so the force
required would be very, very high and probably destroy the shock mounts.
The small springs that some people put in to pop the trunk increase
the load on the trunk latches and trunk release cable which can break. I push
down slightly as I pull the latch to reduce the load on the parts.

Trunk strut replacement from Autozone
Replaced my leaking trunk strut with Mighty Lift part #95957 from Autozone for $18.99. Length is exact. Might be a little strong but seemed to 'loosen up' now that I've opened and closed the trunk a few times.
