I installed a gas strut for my trunk lid. I know I just could have replaced the torsion springs but didnt want to chance really screwing up my car. Where the holes were drilled for the strut wouldnt even be noticable if it was to be removed. Two are hidden and you would never know they were there unless you took off the trunk weather stripping. PICS ARE GONE DUE TO PHOTOBUCKET SCREWING UP THEIR WEBSITE!
