can 78 lower a-arm be fixed ?

lower a-arm took a decent hit on a pot hole and curled in the lower part where the bushing is, drives OK but was wondering if it can be straightened . Its curled in on the bottom where the green circle. Trying to find one locally but not much luck yet

I,ll see if I can get a good pic, is still on the truck. I sorta don,t think it can be fixed as to keep the alignment right with the cross shaft but I don,t really know . Front end stuff fixes could cause other issues.

I have pushed them out a few times. As long as the hole is still round it should be fine.
