Caster with a trailing arm is a misused term. Caster angles are only used with steering geometries. From what I can make out of your query , you seem to be asking about the arc of the trailing arm. You can try to play with your inboard mounting points to get a three dimensional arc or 'caster' as you say.

I didn't mean the arc. Actually while designing trailing arm, ADAMS Car showed a weird graph for caster and hence I was confused as what will be caster for trailing arm.
