Sounds like you bent a shock shaft.

Could have bent a hinge pin as well. A badly bent hinge pin could keep the suspension from freely moving through its range of travel. If the shock is removed, the remainder of the suspension components should move freely. If they don't, check to see where the suspension is binding and replace parts as needed.

The shocks move freely to their full range of movement but they dont bounce back up after being pushed down but if i pick the car up they go back to normal position so i dont think its a bent hinge pin

Sounds like they need a rebuild, clean them, change the seals & replace oils, put back together properly & you should be right to go as long as shafts & other perts are all in good condition.
