Our expert insights into trailing arm replacement

Our expert insights into trailing arm replacement

What does a trailing arm do?

A trailing arm is part of the suspension for the axle of a vehicle which moves up and down as the vehicle travels over a bumpy surface. It’s job is to act as a pivot point and stop the rear axle or rear spindle from moving forward or rearward during operation of the vehicle.

What are the symptoms of a bad trailing arm?

Below are the top three symptoms that could indicate you need to replace your trailing arm:

  • Clunking noises from the back of your car
  • Vehicle won’t stay in a straight line or sways to one side when driving
  • Your rear tires are wearing unevenly and excessively

What happens when we do a trailing arm replacement on your car?

Our certified mechanics will:

  • Inspect your suspension system, including the trailing arm.
  • If the trailing arm is cracked or damaged they will fit a replacement.
  • They will advise if any related parts need to be replaced.
  • They will check that all parts have been fitted correctly and test drive the car.
