I think most people forget just how long things take, or maybe they want to sound super agile?
    Near as I can tell, the only thing that is bent aside from the A-arms are the lower front mounting tabs. Instead of ||, they're more like // slightly.

    I think I would insert a piece of pipe or material between the tabs (to stabilize them, hammer on them with a piece of wood as a buffer.

    I wasn't joking lol

    Using wood between the tabs and your hammer/other tool is a good suggestion.

    Probably need to buy a sledge, I'm guessing.

    I just don't want to damage or significantly weaken anything.

    A 3# hammer should be more than enough. Do it while the fender is off, you will have more room.
