how do you get the rear liftgate shocks off the little ball on a 97 kia sportage on 1997 Kia Sportage

I undid the brackets but the shocks don't want to come off the little ball stud.

Sometimes there is a U shaped clip above the ball socket that has to be removed, some times the ball socket has a hex nut at it's base that you unscrew from the body. Kia as a car manufacturer put a lot of great technical information and work shop manuals on line for free for Kia owners.
