I've noticed that the bottom part of my rear shock seems to be twisted at the point where it connects to the swingarm.(twisted and to the left) I can't post pics, cause my internets are broken(supposed to be fixed today though....)
The bike has a salvaged titled from a previous owner who rebuilt it all, it must be leftover from that, cause I don't see how I coulda caused it.

How bad is this? I've put about 11,000 miles on her in the last year and couldn't notice that anything was wrong.
You guys reccomend fixing it?

(i'll post a pic when possible)

If you have not noticed by now, I'm not sure it is worth the costs and work. But I would clean it and check it often for cracks. If it cracks, REPLACE it!

The bottom of your shock is connected to the swingarm using a heim joint, sort of a ball and socket. When your rubber seals get worn it will allow your shock to pivot on the ball more. It pivots even with good seal so it doesn't bind. Doesn't look like an issue, but you could replace the seals located on both sides of the connection.
