Straigthening Chain Link Fence Post

My daughter has several 1 5/8" diameter, 4' high chain link fence posts that are leaning several degrees off plumb (about 4 - 6" at the top) and have not moved further in the 10 years she has been there. For many reasons I can't pull and reset them. Is there any way to bend them into position? Besides being set in concrete they have also had a driveway poured around them. At my own house I had exactly the same situation, put a chain on it and pulled it straight with a car by it bending at the driveway level. However, in this case a garage runs parallel to the fence only 4 feet away with the posts leaning the other direction.

I would not try to bend the pipe. It will likely kink which will greatly reduce its strength.

If I understand your description, the posts need to have the top of the posts moved closer to the garage. If that is the case, push the top of the posts toward the garage and add fresh concrete between the driveway and the posts.
