agreed on that is how to resize, the info I was getting on the board for others to see was when you change to ARB style bolts you need to resize as well. So say the experts. It still is not entirely clear to me how a greater clamping strength by the rod bolts deforms the rod/crank bearing surface, but they say it does, and have experienced rods that were fine with stock bolts, not be fine with ARP, so the rods get resized with the new bolts.

possibly the greater force squeezes the rod half moons more so the flare a little more and thus get out of round and tighter on the crank shortening the distance when measured along the axis of the rod.
