I am in the process of replacing my bent front rim (only a slight bend, causes a small vibration) and have heard that a damaged rim can also damage the axle. Can anyone confirm this?

You should be able to check it with a straight edge. Or take it to a shop and have them use a wheel balancer and a runout gauge.

I would think you'd have to whack the piss outta the rim pretty good to bend the axle though. roll that sucker on a table top and see if it wobbles? i've done this with fork tubes in the past and it worked good enough.
