Brought my Huracan in to the dealer for the first time.

After going over a road imperfection, I started seeing an error: "Damper control: System fault". Now the shock absorber light shows on the dash.

Quote from the dealership to replace the shock is $9.9k.

The light is annoying but the lift is fully functional and I've noticed no difference in operation of the car. No leaks.

Am I at risk if I keep driving on this? Browsing around it looks like rebuilding shocks might be a cheaper option?
Wondering what I should do here. Thanks.

Few things to try and help - I don't have a ton of experience with the dampers on this specific car as mine haven't had any issues...
1- Try resetting the error code (you can do that with a computer into the OB2 port) or if you don't have something like that disconnect the battery for a while. See if the error shows back up. It's possible the error code was triggered because of the force of the impact vs. having a permenant problem. I do know from spending time in the computer that there are max values for the shock force that you can trigger in the adaptations menus, so its a possibility I think
2- If the code is still there I would take the wheel off and have a look. If you have the upgrading system (I'm guessing you do since you have the front end lift). I'd look to rebuild it as well.
3- One other thing that it could be is a height sensor issue (I'm doubting this, but including just in case). On each A arm there's a height sensor, maybe with the large shunt to the wheel it bent that arm. You can easily see it if you take the wheel off - it has a green colored pivot arm. If that looks like it's not sitting somewhere in the middle it could be an issue as well.

Let us know what you find out!
