it def looks like its bent up and to the side a little bit, but i would assume you cant even tell the difference. If it were to break on you while driving i dont think it would be too bad because its not an integral part of the suspension.
If it breaks then fix it. Or, inspect it from time to time noting its exact condition to see if it worsens. Other than that, i think your cool man, dont let some dealership take your money.
