    And is the back still properly aligned to the front standard when everything is at the 0 position?

    It seems strange that only the rods were affected. I have 3 of them, the fourth is in use by my Technika IV. The rotating parts at the end are very stiff - I have soaked them in fluid but they are still very stiff to rotate.

    Thanks for all the help and info everyone and thanks linhofbiker for kindly sending me your spare rods.
    I too was surprised by how little damage the camera actually took from its fall. . . after I collected myself and set to reshaping what was bent. A testament to the construction of the Linhof that only the rods broke (and at the weak point of the ball joints.
    I've since tested everything and when I get the rods it'll be like this never happened.

    I'm glad there a supportive community out there for this kind of thing.
    Happy shooting all
