Reading this thread has made me realise that I'm not the only saddo that does this sort of thing and I'm currently reassembling the entire suspension on my 2002 VW Golf Mk4 having gone through the whole process as listed by others. I can't offer any better methods but one thing I did after cleaning out the holes for the Wheel Speed (ABS) Sensors was to use an adjustable reamer to increase the size by a few thousands of an inch after having to pound them all out with a hammer. I've fitted new ones with a smear of silicone grease and a stainless steel Allen screw so the next time (if ever) they're removed it will need no real effort to overcome the slight interference fit.

The ABS sensors never come out intact🤬 I did pretty much the same as you by easing the hole open ever so slightly.
