Bending 7075 links in tube bender

Yes, its been done but I cant remember who did it

Looking for feedback on this and how it worked out for the bender. Any bent pins or failures? I can make new pins but making new arms would be a pain. I only need 10-15 degrees so I can clear the frame on my TJ. I could probably triangulate the lower links but Id have to redo the entire mounts and I like my geometry at the moment.

Looking to do 2 7075 lowers and uppers. Currently run 2x.250 wall Heretic fab lowers and 1.75x.120 uppers with JJs. I know of one 4500 car that runs these but they bought the car with them installed. I asked WOD to make the links and bend them but theyre scared to do the bends. I might ask again if they can bump up to 2.25 or larger and feel comfortable doing it. Anyone want to try some 2.25 or 2.5 diameter 7075 bends for me?
