no impacts to speak of....original prop and only minor wear.
The propshaft will skew in one direction or another if the strut is wacked. Assuming the strut is aligned, the motor would need to be aligned after the strut or if there's enough range, the order can be reversed. Either way, the propshaft alignment needs to be checked regularly.

If it's bad enough, it will show up visually but generally, since you can't see all the way around the shaft, it's not the best way.

"No impacts to speak of"- either it has had impacts, or it hasn't. There's no in-between.

How much wear can a shaft have before it needs to be replaced?

I would guess any wear, but I don't know...
