Both front wheels off when the car fell?
Probably bent the shift linkage but there may be more too it than that & obviously y'all need a set of jackstands before working on the car again. I can't stress enough how important it is to use jackstands on level ground & secure the rear wheels so the car can't move - people have been killed doing simple things on a car that was only supported by a jack.
Once you get the front end raised up & SECURED on jackstands, parking brake set so the car can't move, then one person can try to move the shift lever while another watches the linkage underneath. Also look for other damage. Like to the oil pan, the brake rotors, etc.
Also, every time you replace brake pads you need to take the rotors to a shop with a brake lathe - they may look fine, but be out of parallel. If so, you'll get a pulsation when braking & the pads won't last long. Shops in this area only charge $7 per rotor to turn them on a lathe, so it makes no sense to not have them precisely measured & turned if necessary.
