bending rear suspension?

So back in March I had an altercation with a guard rail (whoops!  Way to
finish of a QCUSA event :(  ), which left one of the rear wheels with a
lot of toe out.  (FWD '93 90CS)  The shop where I took the car to be
fixed put it on a frame straightener to bend the wheel back in place,
which seemed fine with me at the time ... but the other day I was
flipping through the suspension manual (for an unrelated reason) and
there in big bold letters it says DO NOT ATTEMPT TO BEND OR STRAIGHTEN
ANY COMPONENTS OF THE REAR SUSPENSION (or something to that effect).
So now I'm worried; should I tell this guy to replace the rear axle?  Or
will bending it not be so bad?

Thanks all,
