    As long as the internal bits aren't damaged it is pretty easy to rebuild.
    Messy, but not overly complicated or finicky to put back together.
    The toughest part for me was driving the top seal into the seat; for this, if you buy an extra seal or two you can stack them.
    I put an extra steel spacer on the stack, and used a PVC tubing connection as a slide hammer.

    Easy or not - doesn't really help me, given that the dealer mechanic is going to rebuild them. The problem for me is the price of the new part, which cannot be circumvented...

    Come to think of it, how often are forks bent after a fall?

    Frontal impact I'd think pretty often.
