Default a little bent

hey all! I was busy modifying my body to allow for refueling and tuning without removal (choppin holes) when I noticed that three out of four of my dog bones are bent. Iv'e been tapping my hinge pins straight (relatively straight) each time I have to replace or fix a suspension arm cause they allways get bent. I guess I'll pull the bones and do the same. I just use a hammer on a piece of railroad ty to straighten them and this works OK but I am hoping that someone can tell me a better trick. My left front hinge pin is getting pretty hard to straighten anymore.

Thanks, post u later

Order new ones...lol.

I had to get some front ones for my 1/8 'Cane cuz I lost one in the carnage of a wreck and they came 4 to a package so I have 3 extras now...they were pretty inexpensive too.
