I've got one lying around the shop in NM somewhere. It would be a few weeks before I could get to it though.

I would make a new one out of DOM tube and heim joints, that way you never have to worry about bending it again.

Randy, what do you mean "heim the joints"?

These. You weld a threaded fitting called a bung into each end of the DOM tube. One has normal threads the other has reverse threads. The heim joints thread into the bung along with a locking nut to make the rod adjustable. It makes a bullet proof setup that won't bend or break.
