This is a common problem on our rigs. I am going to be welding in the thick washers but for now I just tightened the hell out of things. Not a real substitute but...

If you are going to drill the holes bigger, use a series of progressively larger bits or even use a reamer to get it to the final size. If you just go in with a big bit, it will wallow things out and rill oversize almost 100% of the time. Are you sure that you couldn't get the washers, install them, tighten everything up nice and tight, and then drive to a local 4WD shop or maybe even a muffler shop and have someone put a couple of beads of MIG weld on them? I don't think you have to weld them in first...might be wrong though...

Let us know what you find.
