Default Does This Look Normal? Dogbone Wobble

Can anyone tell me if this is normal? If not, do you know what is causing it. This is not mine, but a car that I sold (which I do not remember the wobble) and I am trying to help the guy out. It does it on both sides.

Yes, it looks bent,but not enough to have any issues. Some of it is just the bone moving around in the out drive.

Thanks guys. That was my thought, but I wanted to make sure I was not crazy. It must of got bent slightly during shipping.

I'd seriously doubt it bent during shipping, but it's not enough of a bend that I'd worry about.

During power output from the motor the bone can bend and twist a little. Luckily it is a consumable item.

Pretty easy way to tell if it is too bent is to take the wheel off, and throttle up. See if there is excess vibration. It should be pretty minimal.

Definitely bent. Worst case scenario you have extra vibration which effects handling and you could also wear bearings quicker.
