Default Fix for sway bar linkage binding on MBX5R?

I'm having trouble with the ball links on the front sway bar binding, consequently not allowing the A-arms to move freely. It appears the balls are too tight inside the plastic bushing, I tried to ream them out but that resulted in making them too loose so the ball now simply falls out. No amount of lubrication seems to help and the car is somewhat close to new.

Is this a common problem with the 5R and what do you guys do to fix it? I actually pulled a linkage from one of my Losi 8ights and it seems to work but I'd like to stick with Mugen parts if I can.

Your input is appreciated, thanks!
