Default best way to mount height sensors for aftermarket air?

Can someone post pics of how you guys have the height sensors mounted on your LS's? Front and pack mounting would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

Not to really come off as condescending, but I think you will have a much better chance on the VIP Style board. While some people on here are running air, I don't really think there are any active users here, with eLevel. That being said, your chances of finding an LS with eLevel might be better off on the VSC Forums.

Accuair? If your running coilovers already theres a mounting point on it already. you just need to drill on the fender walls to screw in the sensor.

for the rears I drilled a hole on the upper LCA and drilled on the fender walls for the sensor.
I also used a Lock-Nut so its wont come loose easily

if you have HIDs, you can also follow the same design and similar mounting points off those height sensors.

keep in mind, someone's setup will differ from yours since no one has the exact same setup as you (ride height, wheels size, air strut, etc). you will need to do some research on how to measure the full swing of the sensor relative to your mounting point, and how to get the right angle so you don't damage the sensor arm (which is very common if not installed properly) when you are fully aired down or aired up.
