Like no travel at ALL? Stiff is one thing but rigid is another. May be foreign object blocking the suspension? That's a wild guess

Take a look underneath and see if somebody blocked it in place instead of fixing broken suspension

You can replace the struts and springs for around $200 in parts. That would return it to the stock suspension. Check out Rockauto.com
