3/4" heim loaded with bending

I tried to seach but didn't find anything definative.

I have a new trackbar that has a poly bushing at the frame end and a 3/4" heim (hole and shank) at the axle end. However, the bar is making contact with my diff cover and I was wondering how far I could bend the bar (1.25 x 0.25) before the shank starts taking too much bending load.

Would a 10-15* bend be too much?

I´d not worry at all about bending it. I have a small bend on my panhards, front and rear, exactly for diff cover clearance and have had no problems. FWIW, I´m running TREs instead of heims, but that should make no difference.

You can see my front setup here:
