How did the Crusades weaken the feudal system?

Feudalism didn't die out completely from the Crusades. The Crusades helped it lessen a bit. This happened because nobles who joined the Crusades sold their land and freed the serfs. This reduced their power and enabled the kings to build stronger central governments.

What social class in Europe gained power after the crusades?

That would be the Burghers, or the middle class. After the crusades, trade required a money economy to be used throughout Europe, undermining the way the Feudal system worked. Lords had to pay their serfs, and there was little way for them to do that. As a result, many of the lords lost land and the serfs on it were freed, becoming the Middle Class. Another reason that some of the lords were displaced is because some nobles died in battle in the Crusades and their land went to kings. Other nobles sold their land for war supplies and allowed their serfs to buy freedom and inhabit the town or be free on the land. The middle class was also on kings' good sides in the first place because the King could collect taxes from them to fund wars.
