Hi guys, great site..

You might be able to offer some advice here. I'm looking at re-locating the attachment point of a tierod on a steering arm around 8" long. I'm not 100% sure the hub it's attached to is forged or cast, as I havent tested it yet, but I doubt it's cast.
I need to lower the end of the arm 1" and any bolt-on mod is simply not possible. I'm thinking of heating and bending using a oxy/acetelene heating tip..any thoughts on trying this, assuming it's not cast iron I'm dealing with?
The loading on the pivot is not extreme due to the length of the arm and virtually at 90deg to the hub.
