Leaf spring plate/lower shock mount

From what I can tell looking at replacement pictures, is the stud for the lower shock mount supposed to stick straight out and also be horizontal? If so, I'm thinking I will be buying more unanticipated parts. This is the rt rear:

Yep, common to hit a stump or rock and bend it.
Replacements are cheap.

Great. The other side is also bent back but not as bad. Add those to list

Thanks

Edit: Any preferred manufacturer or one to stay away from? The Crown as good as anyone else's?

I was 'lucky' enough to buy it already bent.
