So I ordered a 15z-ef2000 with a 1x4GB RAM stick and a 1x8GB ram stick. probably should've gone with a 2x8GB kit, but I figure it shouldn't be trivial to do it myself so that I don't wait another 6 weeks. So, I do know that the screws to enter the internals are hidden under the rubber feet of the laptop. Are the rubber feet reusable or not?
If not, where can I find replacement parts of them?
On the order page, it's listed as HP 15z-ef2000 2K3T2AV_1

Yes and no depending on how do you remove it. You can buy a new set using part # L63597-001
Unfortunately it is is N/A from HP parts store
You have to use part # to buy elsewhere including eBay. I saw it on internet for $22, HP won't allow me to post the link. Please use Google and search yourself

You have the long thin feet strips. Use a sharp tool like a box cutter to start the strip out of the channel. The big thing is not to stretch them, which can happen if you pull too hard as you remove them. If you stretch the rubber it will stick out of the channel at the ends and the laptop will not lay right on a flat surface. Try to preserve the adhesive as you remove them. If you do it right they will just stick back on and fit in the channels.

I’m kind of confused when you say “Use a sharp tool like a box cutter to start the strip out of the channel.” what exactly is “the channel”.
But, the main idea is just to start from the sides of the rubber rather than the ends to prevent the rubber from stretching?

No you want to start from the end of the strip. Take the sharp tool and without marring the strip (a little hard to do) slowly pull it out so it does not stretch. If you try to dig it out from the side of the strip you will amost surely mar it up. Does not want to come out that way. The strip/foot sits in a channel with plastic rails the size and shape of the footer.
