Sounds like you have an adjustable ball mount similar to the Curt part # C45900 which uses pins to adjust the height and hold the ball to the shank. Welding the pins to the shank would stop the movement but would also prevent you from ever adjusting the height again.

Best solution would be an adjustable ball mount with tighter clearances like the Weigh Safe # WS6-25 for a 2-1/2 inch hitch.
