    Hi all-

    I have a 1999 Toyota Tacoma I was installing Timbrens and the factory bump stop broke when I was removing it so I drilled out the bolt. I then drilled through the contol arm and threaded the bottom hole (because the top was to wide from the drilling.) Do you think this will hold? I am not sure how much stress is put on this bolt.

    Hi Main_Snowman....I see noone answered your question, but I was wondering how it worked out for ya. I have the same truck and on the passenger side snapped the bolt of the old bump stop in the controller arm. So pissed. Did drilling through work for you?
