Here's a couple of ideas.

I think I bought 3/4" x 1 1/2" rectangular steel from Metal Supermarket. They sell it by the inch, so you only need to buy what you need.

Can you weld two 3/4" square tubes together to approximate what you need?

My brother-in-law is using 1 1/4" square tubing with .125 wall to build his trailing arms. You can look at some of the trailing arm designs here on the forum and maybe adapt an existing design to your buggy.
