There are three of them. One is located in each front wheel

opening. The upper portion of the sensor is mounted to the upper

control arm and the lower portion is mounted to a bracket which is

mounted to the inner wheel apron. In order to change/lower the ride

height in the front of the car you have to COMPRESS or shorten the

sensor by moving the lower portion of the sensor UPWARDS. This is

done by loosening the bolt that holds the bracket which is monted

to the wheel apron and moviing it up and then tightening the bolt

again. YOU MUST BE CERTAIN THAT YOU HAVE A LEVEL CAR ONCE YOU MOVE

THESE BRACKETS AROUND and then you have to have the casr realigned

or you will wear tires and cause excessive stress on the front

suspension components... The rear sensor is on the left rear of the

car and the lower portion of the sensor is mounted to the left

lower control arm and the upper portion is mounted to a bracket

which is bolted to the inner car body. In order to change/lower the

ride height of the rear you must EXTEND the sensor by moving the

upper mounting bracket UP. Again, an alignment must be done to

avoid stress on susension parts and excessive and improper tire

wear.
