anyone ever had to get a new axle or can the half shaft be heated up and bent back straight?

I don't know how you bent it, but you are probably going to want to replace it. You could probably heat it up and bend it back, but it's not very likely that you will get it back perfect and two they are made from heat treated metal so heating it up will cause it to loose it's strength. I'm not for sure how weak it would make it it even if they are made from heat treated metals, but it's something to think about.
Yeah,I don't think I'd try and bend it back,It would be pretty hard to get it perfectly straight again..unless you had some type of a jig or V-blocks to support it when pressing it.
