then this really sounds like you tore your sub-frame mount bushing (#3 is pressed into sub-frame at the end of #1). With the car on the ground, if you feel around on the end or the sub-frame, where the bushing (#3) fits in the sub-frame, there should be a space (1/2" - 3/4") between the sub-frame and the body. I can get my finger in there on my car (i just went and checked). the body is held up by the rubber bushing. See if the space is the same on both sides. Check the "good"side first. Even gas shocks do not have much spring rate to lift the car.
