Trailing arm
A suspension element consisting of a longitudinal member that pivots from the body at its forward end and has a wheel hub rigidly attached to its trailing end. A sufficiently rigid trailing arm can provide all of a wheel\'s location. In that case it is similar to a semi-trailing arm, except that its pivot axis is exactly perpendicular to the car\'s longitudinal center line.
