Never assume that any replacement suspension component will measure exactly the same as the old part you took off. Everything man-made has tolerances, and the reassembly process can stack these tolerances up a little differently than they were before even if the new parts actually were dimensionally identical to the old ones. The new results may still be "within spec", but that's not the same as "same as before" (which in OP's case seems to be in a pretty good place for his driving).
RWS - you should find out at least what your car's camber and toe settings are before you start any strut replacement job. If you have a flat setup area, there are a number of ways to DIY the measurements and determine these settings.
'08 GT coupe, 5M, wheels, tires, pads, fluid, a few suspension mods . . . still almost stock height
'19 WRX, 6M (the "family sedan")
'01 Maxima 20AE, 5M (the spare and occasional winter driver)
