    The gas spring may have a force rating on the label. It may be rated in pounds or Newtons.

    It can take a lot of force to compress the gas spring on some models. On a different model PWC the gas spring for my hood is rated at 80 pounds of force.

    You are not doing it correctly. Read this TSB to see how simple it is to use a ratchet in the bracket to attach the shock.
