Why not try to straighten it?
If you have such a bent brace, why no try to straighten it?, what do you have to loose?, ANS: Nothing.
I would apply heat with a propane torch, then straighten. This is how it manufactured originally. If it doesnt work out to your satisfaction, your right where you started from.
