Trailing arm like the Moog trailing arm is a vehicle suspension design in which one or more arms are connected between the axle and the chassis. It is usually used on rear axles. However, live axle setups often use just two or three links and a Panhard rod to locate the wheel laterally. A trailing arm design can also be used in an independent suspension arrangement. Each wheel hub is located only by a large, roughly triangular arm that pivots at one point, ahead of the wheel. This arm is roughly parallel to the ground, with the angle changing based on road irregularities. Aside from trailing arm, there is also a semi-trailing arm suspension which can be used as an independent rear suspension system, in which each wheel hub is located only by a large, roughly triangular arm that pivots at two points. The line formed by the two pivots is somewhere between parallel and perpendicular to the vehicle's longitudinal axis; it is generally parallel to the ground.
However, the most common used design for the rear wheels of a vehicle is the trailing-arm and multilink suspension designs which allow for a flatter floor and more cargo room. Nowadays, there are many small vehicles feature a MacPherson strut front suspension and trailing-arm rear axle. Trailing arms like the Moog trailing arm are a common suspension upgrade on your vehicle. Since your factory released lower arms come with a flexible rubber front bushing and these bushing add an element of unpredictability and are definitely not desirable.
This is where the Moog trailing arm comes into play. This trailing arm solves the problem. It totally eliminates the use of bushing instead it employs ultra strong chromoly heim joints. In addition, this trailing arm is designed to allow more clearance to your tire and wheel. It is also made from all-new aircraft quality aluminum. Acquire this here at Parts Train.
