If the car was bottomed out a lot or the damper simply failed, this could lead to the height problem too. In such a case, the damper gets stuck or jammed in the partially compressed position and it won't extend at all or freely. In that case the ride and handling will suck and you're likely to hear/feel clunks and harshness when that corner encounters bumps in the road. I have seen this trouble on several BOGE (oem)shocks.
