I just started kegging and was going to clean my second corny when I noticed that both posts of my second keg are bent and cracked. I've attached pictures of one of them, but they both look the same. I assume these are no good, correct?

I was going to keg my quad, which I don't want to take any chances with, as I plan on aging this one for a while.

Other than this hiccup, my foray into kegging has been a success. I modeled my keezer after Quaffer's fantastic example, and am currently pouring my citra pale ale which is crisp and delicious.
