blown shock?

i hit a huge ass pot hole today that came out of nowhere, and i heard a loud noise. i pulled over thinking immediatly it was my shock and theres no visual damage on the outside, like one side lower than the other or anything like that. but when i hit the brakes hard, theres a loud scraping noise, almost like the wheel is hitting the wheel well. and when i pull into my driveway and i hit the gutter it makes this wierd metal on metal sound.

help me out, my lude doesnt love me....

a blown shock will be leaking fluid, and will also ride very bouncy. but it wouldn't really cause any metal to metal scraping or anything.

jack it up tomorrow and take off the wheel, see if you notice anything wrong/bent, like control arms, radius rod, etc etc. and if possible, take pictures.

i know its an old post, but on my VW i had the same problem, it was resolved by bending the brake gaurd back out of the way of the caliper, i think you may have bent that in hitting the pothole....if it matters now...
