Trunk Spring? I guess call Stalone!

I guess I am missing something but how is one supposed to remove one of the trunk springs and install it in a new trunk? I am strong but youd have to be lou ferrigno to do it. I am trying to not take the trunk off it at all possible. I have read and the "penny method" might work just looking for a better way if maybe I am missing something.

As always thanks for your time!

After a hot sweaty painful couple of hours I am about ready to give up on getting this spring off!!!

I brought my big wrecking bar today and still cant get it off and even if I got it off there is no way I could stretch it back out to get it on the new car.

I have to be missing something - something so simple cant be this hard!
