Drag Link- is it slightly bowed?

This might be a silly question, but does the drag link come from the factory with a very slight bow (bend) to it ? I suspect I might have a bent drag link, not sure if this how it was designed with a bow.

Should not be bent. You can have a local 4x4 shop make you a new HD one. I had one made for around $100 out of thicker walled DOM tubing.

The stock ones are hollow tube and do get bent quite easy. I haven't seen one you could fix. If the bend isn't too bad you can still run with it but will need to check your toe adjustment as the bend will have made you more toe out.
