How do I fix this?

I am not sure how I did this. I know I could take these to a spring shop and have them fixed for $200 or so, but I would like to avoid that. Especially since I will probably have to fix them again sometime. I am betting I either did it reversing hard while hung up but with traction in the front, or it was a hole I hit earlier today covered in mud and water that stopped my Jeep dead while going 5-10mph. I dont just want to go at it trying to bend it back without some advice from someone who knows the proper way to fix these.

Two pics are from the driver side, the other is the passenger side which is not as bad.

others may have different views but my experience with spring steel is yes it can be straightened but will easily bend again in the same place..
