It wouldn't be covered under any warranty. Something bent almost always is going to be caused by external forces (hitting a curb, etc) so it will be denied as a warranty claim.
However, this could go as an insurance claim. The service manual does indicate that, depending on mileage, shocks and struts should be replaced in pairs to avoid issues with vehicle handling. If done through insurance this could be brought up. Same thing for a valid warranty claim (eg, the air spring fails from a defect).
