Brace Tube Thickness

after i install a step notch on the frame im working on, i was going to run some square bar between the notches to act as a brace and a place to weld on the mounts for the top of the air bags, all i can find in square stock right now is stuff thats .120" or about 1/8" thick, so i was going to get 1" square---.120" wall thickness, would that be strong enough to mount the air bags on? if not, how thick does the wall of the tubing need to be?
