Help! 1997 Monte 3.1 Engine strut removal

Good day. Would anyone be able to explain the correct way to remove the passenger (right) side engine strut from my 1997 Monte carlo with a 3.1 Engine. I am in process of replacing the head gasket and can't seem to get this strut off. Thanks in advance to any offers of advice!

late on the reply, but why do you need the strut off to do a head gasket?

At any rate, Without special tools, I suggest you DO NOT even attemt to get the struts out. They are a cartridge style. If not done properly, not only can you severly hurt yourself or others, it will come apart wil driving.
