    If you don't disconnect the level sensor when you pull the lower arm down you can damage the level sensor.

    Odds on thats exactly whats happened. It happens fairly often when people with afl or xenons lower their cars or change springs. the lower arm drops and snaps the sensor arm off.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Putting the sensor under to much pressure even if there is no visible damage by not detaching it will damage it internally beyond use.

    Have a look at it, it may be very clear it's fubar. Or get the codes read.
