You could further enhance them for side to side by giving the jacks a tilt of 7deg sloped outward.

I tried the 3 types of tubing with 1/4" thickness and the best way to go was the square tubing. I didn't draft it I bought the material and put it together that's how I came up with the results!

For the bending support you are after, square tube is much stronger than round. Round is good for torsional power transmission.

It can be done, a couple of tweaks here and there.

As stated in #29, tweak them out and back to give front to back and side to side stability on the rear ones and out and forward on the front ones.
