2High engages fine but 4High/low doesn't?

Drove over a pile of dirt+rocks one day while in 4high and I guess my front differential struck it.

Only in 4High/Low does this happen:
-My car won't idle forward anymore.
-When I gas it, a grinding noise starts that increases in pitch and volume with speed.
-Makes my wheels pull to the right.

Not very experienced with automotives yet but I know what's what.

Adjust the 4x4 linkage.

So I stuck my head under the car and took a look. I found the shift linkage but I didn't mess with it yet, I don't really know what to adjust it to. I also noticed something else.

There is a line that runs into the rear side, top-left corner of my front differential. That line is bent. Would that have to do with any of my issues? I'll upload pics tomorrow because it's night here now and I can't get any good pics.
