Question about steering column sensor ring & lower bearing spring

After completing the adjustable pedal install, my steering feels heavier and tighter.

Part of the install included reinstalling the steering column coupler and torquing the pinch bolt to spec.

When I installed the coupler, I may have compressed the lower bearing spring a little.

Could this be why the steering feels heavier than before?

What function do the sensor ring and bearing spring perform?
