You have to disconnect the strut brace. I installed the M3 front strut brace (as modified and sold by HP Autowerks) to have easy access to adjust the Konis. Look at HPs website and call Harold (the man) who can answer all your questions.

I made a small notched tool to fit under. I'll show a pic when I get home from vacation.

Either get the M3 style strut tower brace kit, remove the oem strut bar at adjustment time or make a special tool to allow easier adjustments.

The cheapest fix is to use a couple of washers and move the OEM strut bars up a bit and out of the way for daily driving. When you want to adjust them, then remove the bolt, raise the bar, and adjust.

The more elegant solution is the M3 style strut tower brace that HPA sells.
