Hello my name is***** am an ASE Master Technician and I am glad to help you out with your question.

Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.

Yes you can replace the lift support yourself it us just clipped on. You need to remove the spring clip and it will come right off. You can use a global coolant, or you can get the coolant from the dealer. Global mixes with every type of coolant.
