    Default Need Correct name of part gone on 92 buick Regal

    Hello, Im would like to know the correct name for a part im looking for, I
    would call it a torson bar (spelling). This part is a metal arm about 20
    inchs long that has a bushings at each end. one mounts to the body of car
    under the back seat other mount to the back wheel. I cannot drive the car
    to a garage because with this arm off, if i hit a bump there is a
    possibility that the wheel with hit back fender. Anyone know the correct
    name of this arm, I hate phoneing for parts that I don't no correct name.
    thanks.

    I think you mean the trailing arm. Easy job to do yourself. Don't even
    have to take the wheel off.

    That's the trailing arm. Very simple to replace. If you really don't want
    to replace it yourself, just drive it to the shop. You won't hit the fender
    with the rear wheel. I wouldn't drive like Mario Andretti, but for normal
    driving, it will handle the trip.

    If i'm not misstaken the brake lines run along the trailing arms , so
    if you are going to drive make sure they are unattached from the arms.

    Not in any that I have seen. I'm not saying a conclusive "no" to your
    comment, just that I've never encountered this in the Regal. Easy to verify
    though.

    Thanks Guys, I now have the arm off. Only need to find an replacement now.
    Front nut was really stubborn but a bit of heat and alot of cursing fixed
    that. There were no brake lines attached to it, only an electrical wire.
