Question body shift/engine shift??

has anyone experienced the body shifting after you reared someone?

have 1995 with 3" lift. rear ended someone and as result when go to put in 1,3 or overdrive the shifter now hits the dash. the hoses and belts are to close to the radiator now. There is a bushing or something like that on each side of the engine that look to be separated on the drivers side this bushing has hit the oil filter causing it to crack thus oil everwhere. Are theses bushings that look to have a bolt coming up thru them the motor mounts? It appears that either then engine has moved forward or the body has moved backward based on these observations I just don't know where the motor mounts are located or if it is even possible for it to have shifted forward? Please help!!!!

looks like the cross brace the tranny is mounted on was bent forward thus pushing engine forward how do i fix this?
