Here'es an elcheapo fix that will probably outlast the car.

Clean out the cavity around the steel insert real good with brake clean or contact cleaner. Allow it to dry over night. Possibly put some aludin (sp?) in there to promote adhesion to the aluminum.

Mix up some good epoxy (intended for bonding metal) and inject it in the cavity around the insert with a syringe. One this hardens, it should have reasonable compressive strength and stop the insert from floping around in the trailing arm. You may want an epoxy with some filler in it to increase the compressive strength.
