My trunk on my 2005 Acura TL will not pop up. When I closed it I heard a clinging noise, the trunk is very heavy when opened manually. What might this be? Shock? Spring?

There's a longsteel rod on the roof of your trunk that goes from one trunk hinge to the other and it acts like a spring when your trunk lever is pulled. Sounds like it broke on one side.

Noisy suspension on 97 Honda civic

Yes, you need a stiffer shock. Your probably bottoming out. You'll need the camber and alignment checked after you stiffen it. The ride will not be so pleasant so slow down for bumps.

I suspect you broke a torsion spring in the trunk. This can be replaced by you, but you won't be happy if it snaps you.
