Thank you for running the numbers, Your terminology confuses me through. Could you show a free body diagram?

Not a diagram, but better. Note the "cross member" connects the two upper forward landing gear/cabane attach points, transmitting athwartships loads. Note also I'm only dealing with the forward, planar tubes. The aft tubes are ignored in my analysis.
