      Comments about Dorman - OE Solutions Rear Position Trailing Arm:

      Had to replace the oem trailing arms that had rusted through and broken in half. This trailing arm is MUCH better than the OEM sheet metal channel arm that was installed. I found this product to be an exact fit for my 95 Olds Cutlass coupe and it really helped the handling of the car. (surprised me actually). The car tracks and handles better with these arms and there is definately less noise coming from the rear end.
      The hardest part of the installation was getting the bolts for the old arms out. This product does not include replacement bolts though, just the trailing arm.

            Like the last reviewer said, this is miles ahead of the cheap stamped flimsy factory part. This is square tubing with welded ends. Its going to take a lot to bend it-period. The rubber bushing are not high durometer rubber but are better than factory. Grease fitting (zerks) would be nice BUT for the price you can drill & tap them in yourself if needed. Nothing bad at all to say about the part, worth every penny & then some. 2004 Impala

              Comments about Dorman - OE Solutions Rear Position Trailing Arm:

              The problem with the stock rear trailing arms is that they are in the shape of a upside down U. This allows for buildup of road grime, grease, dirt, snow, and salt over time. This also means that it's not a solid piece and can be bent, warped easily, and wear out quicker over time. These new trailing arms are a solid square piece of metal and are definitely stronger than the original. They installed quickly and easily. I felt better control of my rear sway with these new bars over the old.

                          A trailing-arm suspension uses two long arms on either side of the vehicle to connect the rear axle to the frame. The arms connect the front of the axle to some point on the frame ahead of it. Also Dorman - OE Solutions Rear Trailing Arm Part No. 905-501 is not an exact fit for your 2000 Lincoln Navigator. Instead please check the Dorman - OE Solutions Rear Trailing Arms - Part No. 905-305 which would be exact fit for your vehicle.
