Well let me put it this way.

rear strut bars generally sit perpendicular (or is it parallel) just below the hump of the trunk liner where the shock towers are.

Now from what I've seen stealth boxes tend to sit right above the plateau of the trunk liner where the shock tower is. So theoretically you should be able to install a rear strut bar with stealthboxes.

Sure why not. Like I said my hypothesis is all theoretical based on pics I've seen.

Hmmmm

I think if you compare the 3 pics I posted I think my theory is correct.

All I need to do is get my amp and wait for my stealths to arrive and I'll know for sure.
