A trailing arm suspension which comprises a suspension arm (1) suspended to a suspension member (4) through resiliently deformable members (2). The resilient members (2) are arranged so that at least one of the members has its longitudinal axis tilted with respect to a pivot axis (6) of the suspension arm (1) for vertical displacement thereabout. The tilting angle of the member is selected to make sure that a high rigidity axis (7) of the resilient member which extends normally to the longitudinal axis thereto crosses the high rigidity axis (7 min ) of the other resilient member at a point (Q) behind the pivot axis (6).; The crossing point (Q) of the high rigidity axis (7, 7 min ) is located behind the pivot axis (6) of the suspension arm (1) and behind and outside of the traction point (T) of a road wheel (5) so that toe-in change may be caused in the wheel alignment in response to a lateral force applied thereto.
