I broke the back brace on Godzilla in the same place a few fears ago.
I ran a piece of 1/2" all thread through the bottom rectangle brace and bolted it to the outside of the side plates.

so first did a little measuring, built the bracket ends first and re-measured to make sure the tubing when cut would be the right length.

I would back up and think about that.
I don't think the heim joint is a good Idea.
The idea behind the rear brace and the front brace plus the one in the middle
of the car was to hold the side plates solid, so the body would not flex like the front
did and start cracking.
The cracks could get worse.
Don't know, lets talk about it. popcorn

I was thinking of using Himes !!
That way the flex / movement has a place to go.
Wow Great Minds do think alike !!
