Range rover said it was. The front of my car dropped low and wouldn't come up

Ok after the strut is replaced the system has to be reset to clear the fault using a dealer diagnostic tool. Also a lot of times when the strut has been leaking it will damage the valve block on that side requiring it to be replaced as well. From the description of the issue however this is consistent with the system needing to be reset.
