That's not bent. For one, it is impossible to bend metal, for two that is what the tie rod ball joint is for, to take up angles, you're fine.

IM happy to report that it was just the tie rod end link that was bent and not the tubing. I even found a usable tie rod end in my parts box. So this fix is a freebie.

Hope the front diff has a drivers side drop or you're in for a lot of work. Odds are good it's a passenger drop. Ford is the way to go for the front diff, it does have the drivers side drop.
