Default Gear leg has excessive toe out

After going through tires in one season, three seasons in a row (about 100 Hrs/yr), I finally checked the toe of the gear and found that the right side had excessive toe out (by using a piece of aluminum angle against the brake disc, extending forward about 18" the end of the angle was about an inch to the outside).

Assuming this was a bent gear leg I sent it to LangAir and it is within specs.

SO, one solution I am told is to use an oversize bolt and re-drill the bolt hole in the gear/engine mount. Would this would require removing the mount?

The other option given by LangAir was to use a "Step bolt", does anyone know how this is done or have a diagram/pic?

Any other method/advise is much appreciated.
