Need a Rubicon Dana 44 rear axle housing

Just dropped off new parts (ARB Locker, Yukon 4.88 gears, thanks Marcus) and axle housing off at local shop and they just called to say the housing was bent about 1/2". Looking for options to use the new parts along with new Nitro 35 spline axle shafts. Anyone have a vendor/brand for bare axle housing that I can throw the parts in? Other option would be to buy a built out setup and try to sell all the new stuff. This is my DD and has been out of commission for three weeks. Damn!

A couple of years ago I got a quote to straighten an axle. $250 and that was while it was in the vehicle.

Be careful here, 1/2" bend would be very obvious and there would be issues like noise, worn wheel bearings, etc. Have them show you what they're talking about. Not unheard of, but we don't really hear that much about the rears bending.
