DOM yes HREW no. The weld seam on the 2" OD will mess you up.

due to tube tolerances, they may be a tight fit. the 2in tube with a .25 wall could have an exact 1.5in inside diameter

agree with rocky, DOM. HREW would have a weld seam you would have to grind out of the inside diameter of the 2in

no

ID will be 1.5"
OD will be 1.5"
that doesn't work

unless you want to grind the OD of the 1.5" DOM down to 1.49, then get a big fawking hammer out and pray.

Depends on many factors. Sometimes it'll fit, sometimes not. If the pieces are small, you put the inner in the freezer for a few hours and heat the outer with a torch or heat gun, then assemble them quickly.

I'm doing this to lengthen my tie rod. 1.25 DOM, 0.250 wall, adding in a new section and running 0.75 solid rod through it all. I don't anticipate a major problem. Your mileage may vary, though.
