SOURCE: Want to know the relationship

The recall for your vehicle may or may not have included replacement of the trailing arm. The recall says that the trailing arm is to be "inspected" then it will be replaced, or modified at the discresion of the person performing the inspection. If it was "replaced", it would require the control arms to be disconnected and reconnected. If it was only "modified" there would have been no disassembly of the control arms required. See the picture below. The picture shows the rear suspension parts. Notice that the upper control arm and the lower control arm bolt to the trailing arm. (which is what also houses the hub and bearing with the wheel speed sensor.) I hope this helps you to resolve your issue.

SOURCE: front bushes on rear trailing arms.........is it

Yes but you'll need special toolset, I think it's PI-A0048-REV B for that model.
You can make your own with threaded rod and large washers & tube if you're in the mood for it.

Go to any GM dealer and ask to see the diagrams of the suspension parts, they can locate it for you. We do not have the diagrams here at fixya.

How do i install lower trailing arms


best done with the weight on the vehicle remove the bolts going through the arm insulators and remove the arm. do one side at a time and try not to move the wheel. Lower trailing arms may have an washer on the bolts that is off set for alignment purposes so be careful as to where the washers are sitting or you will need a rear wheel alignment when finished.

How to replace rear trailing arm bushings


This is a fairly involved job, the entire rear suspension assembly will have to be at least lowered. There are special installation/removal tools (bushing drivers) needed to facilitate.
These bushings realy fail, is there some reason why you have determined replacement; i.e. noise maybe?

Just wanna know if an 06 grand prix has rear tie rods


The Gran Prix should come with one of 2 systems and they would be a strut set up or a coil spring and shock set.On these set ups they dont have tie rod ends These are usually held in place by an adjustment arm and a trailing arm.These 2 arms hold the rear axle in its stationary position.I hope that gives you an idea as to the setup of most of your newer rear axles.

I need to replace my struts and rear shocks on my 2006 honda civic ex, 1.8 L. How can I get a view of how they are removed.


Removal
  1. Raise the rear of the vehicle, and support it with safety stands in the proper locations.
  2. Remove the rear wheel.
    1. Position a floor jack at the connecting point of the trailing arm (A) and the knuckle (B). Raise the floor jack until the suspension begins to compress.
    2. Remove the flange bolt (C) from the bottom of the damper. Discard the bolt.
    3. Remove the trunk side trim panel.
    4. Remove the self-locking nut (A) while holding the damper shaft (B) with a hex wrench (C).
      1. Compress the damper unit (A) by hand, and remove it from the vehicle.
      Inspection
      1. Push on the damper as shown.
      2. Compress the damper assembly by hand, and check for smooth operation through a full stroke, both compression and extension. The damper should extend smoothly and constantly when compression is released. If it does not, the gas is leaking and the damper should be replaced.
      3. Check for oil leaks, abnormal noises, or binding during these tests.
      Installation
      Install the damper mounting bushing (A) onto the damper unit. Position the damper assembly (B) between the body and trailing arm. Be careful not to damage the body

      1. Position a jack under the trailing arm to support the suspension, then install a new damper mounting bolt (A).
      2. Loosely tighten the damper mounting bolt.
      3. Raise the rear suspension with the jack until the vehicle just lifts off the safety stands, then tighten the damper mounting bolt to the specified torque value.
      4. Install the damper mounting bushing (A), the damper mounting washer (B), and a new self-locking nut (C) on the damper shaft.
      5. Tighten the self-locking nut to the specified torque value while holding the damper shaft (A) with a hex wrench (B).
      6. Remove the trunk side trim panel.
      7. Install the rear wheel. NOTE: Before installing the wheel, clean the mating surface of the brake disc or brake drum and the inside of the wheel.
      8. Check the wheel alignment, and adjust it if necessary
