WJ Track bar washer size

I have a feeling my track bar hole has started to oval. I am going to be doing some work to the suspension soon so I figure now would be a good time to weld a washer on there to fix and hopefully prevent any future problems.

Anybody know the size of washer I need? I have a ton of washers at the shop but need to make sure I have the correct one.

Thanks

On my ZJ, I simply drilled the axle mount and bushing out to 7/16 inch.
using a std grade 8 nut you can clear the bolt if you get the right length. otherwise the bolt screws in so far you cant get the box end wrench out.
I like the idea of a larger bolt, gives it more metal surface area to work against.

I know I can drill it out and go to a larger bolt, but I would rather just weld the washer on and leave it the same.
