Axle straightening

So when I lifted the zuk 5 years ago, I was told my axle had a slight bend in it... And after wheeling and picking the front end up a few times I'm sure it's a little worse...

So does anyone have a good way of checking.... And if it is bent... Does anyone have a good way to straighten it?

I already have a truss to go on


Went into Vancouver frame and axle(my dad had them straighten a 44 years ago)
They quoted me $2200 in vehicle and $1200 axle only... I alighted and walked out

What axle is it might be cheaper to find another that isn't bent and swap parts

its very common forzuki axles to be bent and the only way to check them is with an alignment bar

I have a clean axle.... But straightening would consume a lot less time than swapping perches, shock mounts, diff guard

There is no need for Toyota axles in this build, everything is where I want it... I have a 2nd gen toy rear for my next project

And to anyone who says toys are better... Theres a guy running 35" boggers locked f/r on samy housing in the petersens outdoor trip with no issues
