Aftermarket Trailing Arms
The handling on your vintage Ford or GM vehicle will be better than ever when it has new automotive trailing arms. Also known as rear control arms, these serve as the rear pivot points of any vehicle with a trailing link suspension design (such as coil spring, independent rear and live axle suspensions). The arms also stop the rear axle and spindles from shifting front-to-back while you drive.
Eastwood is an official dealer of QA1 trailing arms that are an OEM fit for popular DIY vehicles. Even if the trailing links on your car are in normal working order, many enthusiasts still switch to QA1 arms as a performance upgrade. They’re available for the Ford Mustang, GM A-Body series, El Camino and much more so you enjoy every drive.
Trailing Arms for Muscle Cars
QA1 manufactures round tube trailing arms for the upper arm and boxed trailing arms for the lower assembly, both of which are a type of tubular trailing arm. These are much stronger than the stamped steel factory arms used from the 1960s to the 1980s. You’ll be able to push the suspension harder in high-performance restomods knowing the trailing links can handle it. Another benefit of tubular trailing arms is that they are adjustable. By changing the arm length and pinion angle, you can raise the ride height for off-road clearance or lower it for enhanced street performance.
Each high-performance rear control arm has polyurethane bushings that eliminate flexing and binding issues common on older cars. Replacing the control arm bushings alone will result in a smoother, more predictable ride. Eastwood also carries hardware kits, brace and relocation brackets to customize your installation. They’re part of our full collection of restoration and aftermarket automotive suspension components that have a 100% customer satisfaction guarantee.
