Typically the steering arms are wider at the end where the hole is, if you shorten them will there be enough material to redrill the hole. Are you drilling a tapered hole to accept the stock tie rod end? Shortening the steering arm will quicken up the steering, is that what you are after?

Yes, you can elongate the upper control arm adjustment slots, but if you are lengthening them inboard, make sure the control arm doesn't hit the top hat in droop.
