Hey guys, I just wanna know if anyone has had the same issue as I have been having when removing/reinstalling the stock suspention set up for 2015+ WRX

So basically the issue is everytime I remove the strut on the driver side (and sometimes passenger side) once the second bolt comes out the strut expands as if it were fully loaded and always threatens to pierce the axle boot directly under it. It has happened to me before and already had to replace my axle boot. I want to avoid this issue I dont want to have to replace my axle boot every time I change my suspention for (winter/summer).

SImiliarly, putting the stock suspention back on same story but in reverse having a hard time actually getting in on I had to go to someone to get it done.

Let me know if anyone has any of the same issues and how do I avoid destroying my axle boot.

It sounds like you're possibly removing the nut on the top of the strut too soon. Or possibly the nut was loose and came off at some point in the past.
