I've tagged this article for expansion. More details are needed, and only one source is noted (and used although not cited.) Fine source it is, but some more experts could give a hand here... (I could have a try and add something more, but I believe an engineer would be better suited for the task, and I am not one.) --Arny (talk) 17:46, 28 March 2010 (UTC)

yes, it explains "stuff" but doesn't really explain benefits and drawbacks of this suspension component. I'm currently dealing with step out due to bushings combined with this rear suspension. 24.98.133.72 (talk) 02:49, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

Merge proposal: "Weissach axle" into "Trailing arm"[edit]

The "Weissach axle" is a specific application of the semi-trailing arm principle. The article on the Weissach axle is short and can easily fit in the more general article "Trailing arm". Therefore I propose merging "Weissach axle" into "Trailing arm". Sincerely, SamBlob (talk) 05:10, 4 April 2015 (UTC)

Good idea. Greglocock (talk) 06:12, 4 April 2015 (UTC)
  • I'm wary of this. The Weissach axle is obviously independently notable. More to the point, it's significant as an early example of passive rear steering, not as a fairly mundane example of a trailing arm. Andy Dingley (talk) 09:41, 4 April 2015 (UTC)
