Trailing Arms

How hard is it to install Trailing Arms? Is it similar to sway bar installs?

Hey ICEMAN,

Take a look at this install document. It is fairly straightforward, as shown. The only caveat is that you will need to extract the upright bushing for a complete installation. This can be done with an appropriately sized set of sockets and a long bolt, or with a tool that you can purchase. Either way, its just a bolt-on installation. Let me know if you have any questions.

From the information in your sig, it appears you have a fresh 5th Gen. Why are you replacing your trailing arms?

just read in another thread that changing the trailing arm reduces wheel hop. Just doing research.

There are a bunch of people saying the stock ones are junk. Is this not true?

The Pfadt units are a drastic improvement over stock and they include the trailing arm bushing kit. The engineering team at Pfadt managed to increase strength by 106% while simultaneously reducing mass by 17% and reducing deflection by 32%. This allows the suspension to react more quickly to the changing road surface keeping the tire in contact with the road to increase traction. Also, take a look at the Pfadt Solid Subframe Bushings. They will help eliminate subframe movement, make your car react to steering inputs more quickly, provide better control when launching hard, and eliminate wheel hop.
