Running coilovers during winter

So I bought a set of Godspeed mono SS

I live in toronto and we use a lot of salt.

I've gone ahead and bought some ISC coilover bags, and went ahead and applied anti seize on all the threads, if I make sure the bags are tight and all the threads have anti seize, i should be good for this winter, and then I would apply anti seize again every winter.

Should I do anything else?

Got it,

also, during the summer when I installed my lowering springs, they destroyed my shafts. I don't know why that happened.

If i get my mechanic to put them on would they ruin my drive shafts again?

Do you mean the shock shaft? If so, they did a bad job of holding the shaft while trying to get the top off--that's my guess. You need to hold the shaft to loosen the center bolt. If all you did is lowering springs, the first time you remove that nut, it might be frozen over time. If what I say is the case, I think I'd ask around for someone who could do it without wrecking the shaft. I've done that, but I was throwing the shock and didn't care.

I can't picture how they could have messed up your axles. You'd have to really suck to mess them up. I can see ruining the boots, but I half suck and haven't made that mistake. Did they pay for their mistake?

Unfortunately not,

I found a much more competent mechanic for my coilovers.

This I should what they did, they either purposely destroyed them or lied they did to take your money. No one messes up axles doing shocks, at least no one who wouldn't take blame and pay for it--you were robbed.
