Pretty sure both are suppose to be straight.
Yes it is.

6. The suction screen appears to be the one Hoye sells from the pic on the website, it wasn't completely caked with crud, but it definitely needed cleaned... what I didn't do, was pay attention to what direction the screen came out. One end of the screen has the metal mesh covering the end, the other end does not, and doesn't appear to have any marks on the housing that it ever did.... are they directional? I put the screen in with the covered mesh end in facing the suction hose.

I wonder if it is possible to sleeve them, like tie rods on a pickup, to strengthen the whole assembly.

I'd pull the front driveshaft cover and inspect the splines for wear from "jumping." If there isn't enough spring tension or the splines are worn, you will get a clank noise when the shaft skips. There are 6-8 BB's interfacing between the shaft and the pinion input. I suspect worn spline.
When I toasted my driveshaft (2210D), It made that nasty clanking sound. One new driveshaft (and some mods) restored 4x4. I hope this helps!

Also a 1500d owner and now that it has warmed a bit I thought I would share pics of the steering that you had question about. The one on the left side looks to be bent as yours is and shows not sign of not being normal. The one under the front looks like it is straight. Felt it was all normal until you posted and now I had to look. Thanks a lot! LOL
