Default are my shocks messed up? help :(

so this weekend i had a chance to replace my ball joints, and tie rods. i noticed when replacing the lower ball joints that the shop i took it to 6 years ago didnt place the ball joint in the correct location when they installed the lift, instead of it being in the middle of the spindle, it was placed underneath at the bottom. when i correct the position i noticed it increased my lift by about 2inches. now my question is, are my shocks bad now because on the driver side i can push and rock the front end up and down at least 3 inches, but on the passenger side i cant rock it at all it feels pretty stiff maybe half an inch movement. this is on a 5 lug mini taco. before replacing the ball joints, i could rock both sides up and down pretty freely so im confused :/ anyone?
