1018 is one of the most basic of mild steel alloys. but yes, it refers to the grade/classification of the steel.

I agree. 1020 is DOM, so what you bought isnt DOM.

1018 is Cold Rolled which is better than hot rolled but not as strong as DOM.

The carbon content is .18% hence the 1018

Cold Rolled is used in sliders/bumpers/etc

DOM is normally always used in links and most of the time in shock hoops and other critical applications.

1020 is the most common form of DOM they do offer it a lot of different alloys.

Thats cause rollcages strength isnt from the tube itself so much as it is the actual cage design. 2"x.25" wall is the smallest wall and tube diameter I would use for suspension links.
