The fact that your problem side rests higher than your right would indicate that your cuff on that side is relatively weak. You may be dealing with an impingement. If this is the case, as you make overhead movements, tissues get "pinched" which causes pain.

I think you should be doing lots of rc strengthening and scapular stabilization. Keep in mind that it takes a long time to get the shoulder to sit correctly in the socket again.

I also think you should be evaluated by a shoulder specialist to get a proper diagnosis (the crunching sound doesn't sound good). So long as you don't have a major tear or other functional issue, then find a good physical therapist and get to work.
