The biggest concerns that I have seen on trailing arms for the Camaro are 3 fold:
1. There are 2 trailing arm bushings per side. You are only replacing 1
2. The strength of the trailing arms are stronger than OE, but to be honest, there is no need to have a tubular arm. The issue is in the bushings, and not the strength of the arm.
3. We are seeing noise complaints on some of the link arms being replaced.

but the biggest concern is in fact the lack of control the trailing arms will give you because they are not replacing the outside bushing, which is the same bushing as the inside bushing that comes with the upgraded trailing arms.


The advantage is they look really great.
