      Whoa whoa whoa there. I got confused between your 2010 (P3 chassis) and your 2007 (P2).

      My 2007 is a P2 and my info is for the P2 chassis.

      I'm sure that the P3 will be different!

      All I say below applies to the P2 (2007) XC70!

      There are no rear Bilsteins that fit the XC70 directly (without modification).

      Auto leveling isn't a problem (at least on XC70) - they work off separate height sensors, not the 4c sensors.

      I replaced mine with OEM non-4c. I removed the actuators from the old shocks (lots of...
    8. Sensor? What is this, and where should it go?

      2007 XC70. Found this behind left front bumper during an oil change, just dangling on a wire near the fog light:

      Brake fluid level naturally goes down as the brake pads wear. Replace the pads and it will be right up again - it should absolutely not get "used up" or leak anywhere.

      Check your sway bar bushings after the end links are disconnected. The bushings are bonded to the bar and make a LOT of noise when they get debonded and loose.

      Do you have an old speaker (4-8 ohms) like from a car stereo? Try wiring that across the actuator wires. It will provide both a resistive and inductive load like the original coil.
