Landing gear pin size. Drill for larger pin?

Looking to buy some landing gear pull pins. The present size is 3/8" but a 7/16" pin is available. From what I see on the landing gear, it should be no problem to enlarge the LG pin holes to 7/16" and use the larger (stronger?) pins. It appears that the majority of LG size is 2 1/4". Has anyone done this? A short online search found no info on this.

Thanks in advance for any info or opinions.

First question would be why? Did one of your pins fail? I have never had one fail, so this make me curious.

When our rig was totaled, the landing gear legs were bent, along with most everything else, but the pins and holes for them were unharmed.
