recenter mower deck spindle? (Snapper 1028)

Last week, I wasn't paying attention to the mower deck height and ran over a stump. The collision dented the deck enough for the blade to slice it open. I repaired the deck and replaced the blade. The blade does not sit level in the deck and a visual inspection indicates the spindle is off center.

It is a Snapper 1028 and the owners manual specifies that spindle alignment must be done by a Snapper dealer.
Is it really that complicated? What is the procedure?

Bend it (the spindle flange mounting surface of the deck)back until the blade sits level (eyeball) with the ground.
Too much is just barely enough.....
