You might have broken springs or blown out shocks, that need replacing. Have your car checked out by a local mechanic and they can inspect it for you and offer a fix.

Bounce each corner individually, do they bounce once and go still, or bounce a couple of times and feel a bit soft? When you turn the steering from lock to lock do you hear a clunk? If they all seem normal look under the car at the springs. If they're red or yellow then It's been lowered on purpose and you'll have to replace all 4 with standard ones for your car. Probably gonna need the rubber o-rings that sit on top of the springs too, go for a 2 pip (ask the supplier, they should know what your talkin about) to get a good middle of the road ride height.
