So the kick out on the left of my Tommy is pretty bent (probably from getting caught on the side) and I need to straighten it so it performs better. Any tips on how to straighten metal brackets? I haven't found a replacement anywhere, so getting it straight as possible has to be done!

A vice if you have one...hammer and anvil...my jawhorse does an adequate job...hammer and a 6X6...?

Anvil, totally spaced on that! I don't have one, but know a couple of welders. Might have to hit them up for a few mins and a six pack. Thanks!

Bring it to a local body shop with that six pack at quitting time and it will be fixed in a heart beat.

If you bring it to the one I worked at you'd be worse off than before. And down six beers.

I'm gonna hit up a fabrication shop that I know, and bring some beer and some green, it should get it done.

Fixed in 2 mins at the fab shop mentioned. Pretty much had to force them to take the beer.
