Yeah I'd say 3/16" is about right.
I actually just took a permanent marker and made equal markings of where to remove material and went at it. BTW-- I used a step bit to do it and it made it easier than with a drill bit.

But I bet if you had the right grinding stone a dermal may work.

Ok, so this is probably the dumbest question I've asked to date. What holes did you lengthen? Took my control arms off, and couldn't figure out what to expand.

Yes, they have long slots but not long enough if you cut the springs too much.

is that all springs or ?
did you install a drop knuckle?

I did 2 3/4" springs & I had to make camber plates due to not enough length in slots & it also helped the a-arm angle.
