Front Ride Height Sensor Wiring HELP!

I bought my 2004 RX-8 with front end damage. At some point some idiot took a pair of wire cutters to get the bumper cover off. In doing so, all of the wiring in the LF was not only cut, but all of the connecters were removed. I have succesfully retored the side marker lights and ABS, but I need some help with the ride height sensor.

I have the factory wiring diagram that shows three wires headed to the ride height unit. I have those, they are BLK/GRN, BLK/ORG and WHT/ORG. The harness on the sensor has RED, BLK and TAN wiring. If someone out there is under the front of their car maybe changing pads or mounting track tires, I would love to know how these match up. Thanks,

Can you check the rear sensor? the wires should connect to the same colors, but in a reverse order.......

Great idea!!! Using the rear as a guide I figured it out. After re-wiring the front and turning the wheel lock to lock, no more DSC light. Now down to the TPS sensor. THANKS !!!!
