Need Some Help With Mismatched Control Arm Hole/Bushing

I'm installing Core 4x4 control arms on a brand new Prorock44. Everything was going alright, but when I went to connect the front uppers to the axle side, I found that the grade 8 bolts supplied with the control arms won't slide through the bushings even with a little "encouragement". What's the best solution for this issue? Could I size down to the largest bolt that will go through the bushing?

How close is it? Drill it out. I didnt seem to have that issue and I have the same arms. I also picked up their hardware kit along with the arms.

Do you think that drilling out the bushing sleeve will weaken it significantly?
