I have always pressed the bolt into the rod. You don't want to be pushing on the machined mating surface of the rod. You can put the bolts in the freezer overnight which makes them shrink and makes installing them much easier.

You cannot replace the bolts and not re-size the rod!. Chances are that the rod housing bores were not perfect before the bolts were changed. The bolts being pressed into the rod distort the housing even more.
