Question about Cars & Trucks
Tried drilling it with a smaller bit but it keeps brakeing the bits..
Unfortunately you might be in need of an expert. Drill bits are hardened, unlike your crank shaft. A machinist is usually well versed in broken bolt removal and they might just have an ultrasonic extractor. Getting a broken off hardened anything in usually not something I would recommend to the un-experienced.

Here's a link to an interesting article on beating the factory spare tire lock on the Ford's. Use it responsibly, lol.

there is chrysler TSB 02-001-07 Rev. A. that addresses this issue. it requires replacement of the control arm bushings. if your vehicle is still under warranty this will be covered. if your dealership has the parts the repair takes about 4 hours

Stud removal can be either very hard or easy. Just depends on how hard access is to the stud. You will need to center punch the broken stud. Then use a very good high speed steel drill bit to drill a pilot hole in to the stud. Tap an easy out in to the hole you drilled into the stud and hopefully it will break loose. Worse case scenario is you might have to remove the head and use a torch to heat it for removal or actually use the torch to blow it out of the hole. If you must remove the head and need to use a torch to remove the stud send the head out to a good machine shop. These shops have people there that are qualified to do this process. To much heat can damage the threads in the hole or ruin the head. Good luck. If you ahve more questions please feel free to ask.

Yes, the inner and outer sections are pernamently fixed together with a thin layer of bonded rubber. This is to act as a torsional vibration damper. If they have come apart at the rubber then it will have to be replaced.

Test fit a drill bit in the lock cylinder. You want a bit that is just
smaller than the cylinder. You will be using hardened drill bits to cut through
the cylinder, since ordinary bits may be damaged by drilling metal.
Lock the drill bit into the drill chuck and tighten the chuck.

Drill a starter groove into the lock cylinder. Start the drill on a low
speed and create a groove in the end of the lock cylinder. You don't need to
create a deep hole, just enough of a groove so that the drill bit will not slip
on a higher speed.
Increase the drill speed to the highest setting and drill out the lock
cylinder. Let the drill do the work. If you force the drill into the lock
cylinder, you could burn out the rotor inside the drill motor
