Lower Control Arm Brackets Issues

I'm just curious if anyone else has issues with the holes that go through the lower control arms brackets where the lower control arms attach to the frame? Mine are stretched out and getting worst. I know what my solution to the problem is going to be.. grade 8 washers welded over the hole. I just never hear of anyone else having this problem???

My '97 had the problem with the rears when I got it. It had aftermarket contol arms that had elongated where the bushings fit in, allowing movement. My best guess is that the hammering from the slop causes the problem. I would check the control arms and bushings too. My fix was the same as you suggest except I welded in the elongated part of the holes, redrilled, then welded the washers on.
