Got the back of my car airborne last Friday, which was fine until it came back down.

I put a 45 degree bend in a 9" WB shock in the shaft near the end. Anyone ever straightened one of these things back out?

i wouldn't bother even if you can get it back somewhat straight it's going to be weaker than before and it will happen again and $50 for a new shock is alot cheaper than a new car after it binds and puts you in the wall
