Trailing arm, upper and lower lateral links, toe control link
Four chassis mounting points, one for each lateral link, one for the trailing arm and one for the toe control link.

Four trailing arm mounting points, one for each lateral link, one for the trailing arm, and one for the toe control link.

In this configuration, the axle hub and spindle and trailing arm are combined into a single assembly with the trailing arm attached to the chassis. There are two lateral control links which attach to the chassis and to the trailing arm assembly. The lateral control links are generally positioned on the axle centreline (in plan view).

The toe is controlled by the toe control link which connects to the trailing arm forward of the chassis mounting point, and consequently there is some lateral compliance and sideways movement of the trailing arm mounting on the chassis.

Vehicles with this type of rear suspension include Honda Civic and Integra.

Camber (and roll centre location) is primarily controlled by the pair of lateral links. Caster (and side view instant centre location) is primarily controlled by the trailing arm chassis mounting. Toe is primarily controlled by the toe control link.
