Hudy has launched a suitable reamer for suspension A-arms, just to remove the excess of flash that binds.
What we have done many (including me in the past) is to locate a metal drill bit of the suitable size (in many specialized stores have them in increments of 0.1mm), the key is to remove enough without being too much. Try to polish too the hinge pins with a soft abrassive (toothpaste sometimes is enough). Put them on the chuck of the drilling machine and polish them at slow-med speed.
