I think I would have broken the plastic lever holding the top of the arm instead of bending the arm.

The front and rear main lines are straightforward. Obviously make sure you feed the front lines between the swaybar link and the strut. If you don't pay attention like me on one of them, you may find the line outside the link and have to redo it. Clip them into place on the strut.

The pair of inner lines, described as optional, were a pain. I took a break and went back to tackle them later. I did get them, using a shorty 11 mm non flare wrench. They take a lot of patience, but are doable with the shorty 11 mm non flare wrench. I did not have one of those new ratcheting open end wrenches to try, but if they come in shorty, it is possible they could help.
I didn't have to remove or disconnect the headlight level arm. You're not doing anything abnormal to the suspension other than having it at full droop which is what happens everytime you have the car on jack stands so I'm not sure why you would need to disconnect the sensing arm. The arm is actually supposed to be bent. The front one is bent and the rear is straight.
