I'm looking to get a set of bc racing coilovers for my Hatch. I already have a strut tower brace installed but I was wondering if I would still be able to use it with the coilovers or would I run into fitment issues? Is anyone else running coilovers and a strut brace? If so did you run into any issues? Thanks in advance for any input or info.

I have a Ultra Racing strut brace along with the HKS Hipermax GT IV coilovers. No issues with how everything fits. A possible issue if you don't do your own maintenance is some shops won't want to mess with removing and reinstalling a single piece strut bar to change the battery or do a brake fluid change.

I do pretty much all of the basic maintenance on my car so that wouldn't be an issue. I'm glad to hear you didn't have any problems with your coilovers I just wasn't sure if the added thickness of the brace with the coilovers would prevent me from bolting the brace back on.

Actually have a lot more thread available with the HKS coilovers. The stock suspension barely had 1 thread left when I installed the strut, and that was removing the hatch's strut tower stiffener plates and reusing the shorter factory integral washer and nut.
