Independent suspension is the most important part of any automobile suspension system that leads to move each wheel vertically on the same axle and independently of each other. Rear suspension system consists of several parts, trailing arm is one of the components in the suspension system, it can also be referred as trailing link in a vehicle suspension design. One or more arms are connected between the axle and a pivot point. Rear wheel assembly is directed by the trailing arm wheel suspension

To design the existing trailing arm and in order to carry out the finite element analysis the model is discritised by using HYPERMESH tool. After completion of meshing, the arm is subjected to static analysis by applying the load. The result revealed that the stress concentration was observed near the junction of welded joint and trailing arm.
