ABS, DSC, BRAKE error, after coilover install

Getting these errors after my ST coil over install. I've been seeing some threads about this, but there are pretty old ones.
Trying to get my alignment and see is the shop can recalibrate the new ride height tomorrow. Will this solve my problem?
Can it be the steering angle sensor?
Anyone have this problem before or an answer to this?

had these codes and it was a wheel speed sensor. Make sure all connectors are plugged in at the box also.

Is it the small black box behind the wheel?

there is a box in front parallel to the strut that has 2 connectors in it....... Make sure these are plugged in. Also check the height adjustment rod on driver side front & back!

The wheel speed sensor is located at the brake caliper screwed in with a allen bolt.

Checked all the plugs. Everything seems to be connected. Should I just run a diagnostic test?

There's a high chance that your alignment is way out of spec due to removing the toe bolt and causing your system to throw a code. Happened to my friend and all it took was an alignment.

Toe bolt should NOT have to be removed to fit coilovers. Rear shock bolt removed and push down on rotor and in and out.

when i messed up the aluminum lower control arm, i got all of those lights. replaced the LCA and they were still on. drove around in the parking lot at work and they went away. you'll need an alignment anyway, but try driving around <0.1 mile.
