Re: bent front axles??

excess metal in the diff oil
steering is off
death wobble in extreem instances.

If you are that concerned. Do some measuring with a long straight edge under and infront of the axle.

I'd level the axle as best you could then put an angle finder on the kingpin bolts

I saw one that caught a lot of air and it looked like a lowered honda that needed an alignment. Front axle was smiling.
