FYI, 2.0" x 0.25" is about 15% stronger than 1.75" x 0.375" wall, in a bending moment, and almost 1 lb lighter per foot. Diameter makes a HUGE different in bending moment.
but has trade-offs because it is also easier to dent.

what is the ideal size to stength to weight tube for control arms?

7075 solid 2"?
