Brandon I honestly just worked mine on the hinge for like five minutes and it helped substantially. Personally I don't like drilling cause I can overdo it too easily and cause slop. However its entirely possible your case is worse than mine was.

Do people use graphite lube on areas like hinge pin holes?

I chuck my hinge pins up in a dremel and polish them...helps a lot and makes for a silky smooth surface for the arms to move on

Yes. You also need to flip the D inserts to compliment the 4mm change.

It's better to do something with the pins that don't attract dirt. I would rather polish them vs. adding a lube.

Put a little bit of shock oil in and worked up in and out a little bit and it helped out a lot. Thanks for the tips

Body reamer?!? If you're talking about a body reamer, that wouldn't work too well, or at all for that matter. At least not for making an a-arm hole bigger.

He means a reamer a few thousandths bigger that the hInge pin. Super smooth action with no slop you might get from a drill bit. Available on most machine tool websites...prob eBay too.

Looks kind of cool in an odd way...

Problem
With those reamers is they require a back and forth action to ream the hole. Won't work with arms that have a captured hinge pin (smaller or no hole on captured end) the reamers I'm referring to work by spinning and will ream up to the capture point.
