If Loctite is used and bolt head snaps it would be a royal pain to remove it.

BlackHatch, the idea of welding came to mind but the bearings would have to removed/replaced because of the heat generated in the process of welding the aluminum. The hole is not in a load sensitive area nor does it go through to the steering stem. Yes, it would have been questionable if I was drilling next to the welded frame rail. The welded area would then need to be cleaned and the material removed during that process would in effect weaken the stop.
