I am making my own draglink out of 1 1/2" x .250 wall DOM, and will be using WFO's threaded inserts. I need to put the 2" or so of offset into it to be able to clear the engine crossmember. How do they do it? Heat and bend? Will the heat weaken the steel any? Or do I need to find someone with a tubing bender and the right die? I am really not into making a new crossmember and using a straight DL, so I want to know the accepted way of making the bends in the 1 1/2".
