Default Anyone installed bilsteins for leveling? Need help please

Trying to level my 11' 1500, I have got the bilstein 5100 leveling struts and went to put them on, only to see they use the oem spring seat off the oem strut. There is a cap on the oem strut that stops the spring seat from coming off. On the strut it says do not open or puncture. Do I have to relase the gas from the strut to get this cap off or will it come off without damaging the oem strut. I have looked through threads to try to find a solution but can't find one. Any help with this would be very appreciated. Thanks in advance for your input.

Yes, the OEM cap comes off, it just takes some work.
