Just installed a set of BC Racing DF Coilovers made for my 06 V70R. I have tried to find the answer to these questions but no success. What do I do with the front accelerometers? Do they get installed on the coilovers or moved to the body via 4C Mod? Do I do a sum calibration after completing install? My caR will be slightly lower. Do I need to shorten the rear sensors? I have already cut out the sensors from my old 4Cs. Will shrink wrap and tuck away. Thanks for replying back to me.

Let us know how you like them!

I haven't installed any myself, but I would definitely do a SUM cal now and then again once they settle a bit. You may need to jack up the rear of the car a little if the SUM calibration errors out.

sensors wrapped and tucked...accelerometers wherever u like...calibrate is not necessary but DO IT and only then you'll realize how dumb that system is.

My mate the mechanic did mine, and they are currently tucked up near/behind the headlights, I haven't poked around to see where the rears are, but I assume under the back seat.
I will do a more permanent job one day

What the Dougy said! On the bilsteins you just mount to the strut like normal. I don’t see why you need to shorten the tears just wrap them up good.
