Preferred truck mounting on resin cars

Hi there,

As I build my fleet, I have been using 2-56 screws directly into the bolster to mount trucks. Recently, on a RCW GN car I’m completing, I noticed that the pivot hole in the truck bolster is a fair amount larger in diameter than the screw. It seemed to me that a small sleeve around the screw might improve operation. A number of ideas came to mind. But I thought it would make sense to ask here - what is the preferred method other folks are using?
