are u sure its the axle that is bent, could it be the a-arms or maybe the tie rods. ebay usually has a good choice of parts for the foremans

I would start by jacking it up and looking for a bent rim, worn bearings,a-arms and the tie rods/ends. also check to see the your front end is out of alignment using a measuring tape. you would have to hit something pretty hard to bend an axle.

jack up your foreman with all 4 off of the ground. get someone to start it up and put it in gear. While the tires are spinning, take something straight (such as a ruler) and make contact with the rotating axle and move the ruler up and down the axle shaft. If everything is ok, the ruler should stay in contact with the axle shaft at all times.
