I need to whip up a One link suspension for a fullsize bronco
the links are going to be around 50" long
use a track bar to laterally locate the axles
probably start with Full size bronco coils as I have them on hand to base my designs on. any info on spring rates etc for tall ones appreciated.

My main concern is I have zero experience to draw on in choosing a tubing size and wall thickness to use on the links.
I have a 1.75" die tubing bender on order and IIRC it will bend 0.134" wall
is that enough material strength?
use 2 hoops along the lines of what I saw in TLE shop?
