Default Trailing arm question

Hey guys I just recently got my RAM that has an excellent running engine a new tranny and some significant suspension problems. I have gotten most of it fixed or replaced by now I just need a couple tie rod pieces and a Trailing arm.

Sorry if this is a dumb question but I am pretty lost when it comes to suspension. Is a trailing arm the same as a control arm? I have only been able to find one place that has a trailing arm for a '96 1500 4wd, but I can find control arms all over the place that look an awful lot like the trailing arm. any help would be greatly appreciated. so I can get this done and put some decent tires on it.

P.S. anyone know where I can find some door hinge pins for it?
