Bent Spring - Help!

Hey,
Was wheeling today, and went through a really deep mud pit ( up to windsheild ). So I had to gun it to like 3500 rpm in 2nd gear. I made it through the pit moving very slowly, and then when i got out, it was dry on the other side, my wheels got traction and launched me right into a tree. I hit my right tire into it ( thank god not my fender ). It bent my right spring pretty good, hit it moving kinda fast. What are my options, does superlift sell single springs?, can i bend it back?, what is my best option?

The spring is toast, if you bend it, it'll probably break. Maybe superlift does sell them individually, I have no idea. Another idea is to take the spring to a spring house and have them duplicate it.

Bent spring will rebend in the same place if you try to fix it. If your lift is more than a couple months old I suggest you get TWO new springs, the other will be broken in, the ride will suffeer with replacing just one.
