la bola de broncas

I'm trying to read a Mexican text written in the 70's and can't quite get the right wording in english for 'la bola de broncas'

something like 'the mountain of problems' perhaps? the text is written in an informal, almost vulgar style which id like to recreate in english if anyone has any ideas...

    I don't know what Mexicans could say about it, but I read:

    "a ball of quarrels" or " a great deal of quarrels", though this is more formal. "the hell of a racket" could also do. Any Mex ideas?
