Our expert insights into trailing arm replacement in Ilford

Our expert insights into trailing arm replacement in Ilford

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
