Jeep shimmy/steering wander. (Not death wobble) Drag link bent?

Posted this in general forum but figured it should be here instead

Ive been struggling with some front end problems on my Jk, steering wheel slightly loose and to the right, steering wander, screeching on sharp turns at low speed, the other day the trac control and esp bas lights were on for a little. Took a look under the jeep and made sure everything was tightened to spec and there was nothing clanking when the wheel is turned. Checked tire pressure.
everything seems fine except the drag link looked slightly bent and the jeep looks a little bit toed out. Wasnt sure if i just need a good alignment or if the drag link needs to be replaced. Cant tell if the drag link is supposed to look like this or not. Hope someone can weigh in on this for me. Posting pics.

I think it does. Your steering wheel would be off center if the DL bent. Instead of guessing have it aligned.
