wrecked the 6.9

A couple months ago in september i lost control on a steel bridge, and had my truck on two wheels before smashing down in a ditch. i totaled the whole front end. that being said, i have it all put back together, new fenders, grille, steering box, hood, radiator support, transmission and oil lines, the whole nine yards. the only thing left is the front end alignment, and it has twin i beam suspension. when driving the truck, it pulls to the right. can i bend the i beam back into place or should it be replaced?

he said I beam which is 2wd, twin traction beam is 4x4. If it is 2wd check to make sure your radius arms arent bent or else the truck wont ever go down the road straight
