I need to replace the liftgate supports and ordered new gas struts for it. The problem is getting the old ones off. I assumed they would pop off with a little prying but the will not budge, The brackets were even starting to bend. Anyone replaced these on their infinity and have any tips?

Prise off the retaining clip. On each end of the strut you'll see a clip and an indention beneath it that precisely fits the blade of a small slot screwdriver. When you release this clip, the strut socket will pull free. I like Stabilus struts for all my vehicles. They last.
