    If the bolt slides in easily then not Bent. and dosnt matter much, if it didnt. the only thing that would be affecting handing is if the axle is not parraell to the swing arm pivot.

    the first photo you showed us and said it was bent had 1 arm on ground the other off that dosnt look right,


    As I said you just need to make sure axle is parrell to swing arm piviot.
    you could do that on a flat surface and measure.
