The trunk lid spring is just a torsion bar, and over time it weakens, just like any spring after much use. A luggage rack adds considerable weight, and everyone I've seen will NOT support this extra weight. The easiest remedy would be to find a "junk" car which has been sidelined for many years but would likely have a "strong" torsion spring and replace yours with it(removing the lid and their hinge mechanisms is not too difficult)
