Anyone changed to coilovers on their 10th gen? I just changed out my stock struts wit BC Coilovers but the bottom bolts on the bottom is stripped out and won't tighten, just spins. Anyone run into this issue?

Oh Boy - this is Like the Top Motor Mounts on Volvo's Bolted to Block the Dam Bolts are of Different Material or Oxidize themselves In
On any of these Alloy set up's - ( Some Heat , some Firm Tapping of Bolt Head before any Bolt Removal .. ) Ya Think they would place some Anti Size on
Dam Bolts , ( Yeah Right ) even Tractor Places - Do Not - Bother doing It Right ./.

A Few that didn't Take Weight & Any Load Off of Steering Rack , Same went for Volvo - If anyone didn't take weight Off Buy slightly Lifting Motor - got Screwed ..

A Few Fixed - by Squeezing in some Liquid Metal & Re-Taped , Once Bolt came Out ..

Even then It was 1/8 Turn Out then Back in 1/8+ to ( Back & Forth ) till it Felt like it was Smooth Enough to Back Out ..

A Few placed Helicoils to Repair , I Would Bitch at Honda as it could have Come this Way from Factory ? ( Always Check )

I Had a Stripped Bolt on A/C Mount as I Inspected every Nut & Bolt in First 3 Months .. ( I Bitched after 1.5 Years ) They Re_ Taped & Placed a New A/C
Unit Compressor ..

( Some try to Place Side Ways Pressure then Slowly Back it OUT ) If Bolt Refuses to Back Out ./.
( Personally I'd Drill a small , say 3/16" Hole in Center of Bolt Head - Angling same as Bolt then Tap that Hole , say 5/8" Deep Min. Place 3/16 Cap Head Steel
Pull on Cap Head ./. with Small Pry Bar ..

No Pictures , so I can't really say without seeing Area ./. ( Maybe Plastic Door Tool ) thin End would be able to get Under it ..( Slight Pry while Turning slowly )
