currie upper control arm question.

so a few weeks ago, i installed a pair of currie upper control arms on my xj and it was going smooth until i reached the axle end. turns out that currie uses 7/16 bolts for their control arms, while the stockers have 10mm bolts. this wasn't a problem for the frame end as i just opened up the holes with a 7/16 bit. the axle bushing side however was a whole other deal. I ended up shaving the "dimples" inside the bushing until the bolt went through which i still think is kinda sketchy. For the people that installed these before, what did you end up doing? i shaved a little too much on one bushing and i want to look for a better alternative besides the weld on currie jj mount.
