Installing a hood lift support on E320

A hood lift support (looks like a mini-shock absorber) on my 2000 E320 4Matic wagon gave up recently. I tried to replace it with an after market one that actually seemed more substantial than the old one. Problem is that after I took the old one off, it extends about 6" further than when on the car. I cannot compress the new one due to the gas pressure to get it on. Any suggestions. Thanks is offline
