  • Faster launches, less wheel hop.

Improves Traction. The Swarr Bar is designed to support and strengthen your Mustang's 8.8" straight rear for faster, straighter launches and less wheel hop off the line. Hook up faster and lower your 60 foot times with this easy bolt-on mod.

Perfect for Performance Ponys. If your high performance Mustang is pushing lots of horsepower and torque, your rear end needs support to keep from damaging the drivetrain components. A Swarr Bar will help reinforce it to ensure your 'Stang's tire-smoking power is being transferred to the ground, where it belongs.

Made to Last. The Swarr Bar is made of mild tubular steel and TIG welded for maximum strength and durability. It features a black powdercoat finish for maximum durability and long-lasting good looks.

Bolt-On Installation. Easier than many suspension mods, the Swarr Bar is a straightforward, bolt-on installation.

Application. The Swarr Bar is designed to fit all 2005 to 2014 Mustangs with 8.8" rear end and the straight axle, including 2011-2014 V6 the 2012-2014 Mustang GT 5.0.

traction bars and sway bars... I have a v6 with an 8.8" rear. Im assuming that this is a traction bar.. so here's my question... can install this baby with an Eibach Anti-Roll Sway Bar Kit? Thanks

  • Yes, you most certainly can, Eibach,Ford Racing or stock sway bars will/can only benefit from the stability this piece provides. Installation does not affect the sway bars location,upgades or fuction.It will enhance performance on what ever suspension you may happen to have. I believe it will even work with a sway bar delete/race kit setup...(Not sure because I don't have that particular set up.)It only makes the rear end stronger and has to make it last longer. Hope this helps.....

Swarr Bar with the Watts Link rear suspension I was looking into upgrading my suspension system for a more rigid, lowered, solid feel with less body roll and wheel hop. So here are my current finalists. 1. Eibach Pro-Street Coil Over Kit (11-14 GT, V6) 2. Whiteline Complete Watts Link Rear Suspension (05-14 Coupe) 3. Swarr Bar 8.8in Rear Support (05-14 GT, 11-15 V6 & 07-12 GT500) My questions were: 1. Would these fitments go together? 2. What more should I be considering other than camber plates and a strut tower brace?

    swarr bar main feature is keepn your axle from twistn & putn more tire to the ground.

    September 21, 2011

    I put it on my 2011 gt500 . Omg what a diffrence i noticed that the feel of my car is putn way more rubber to the ground. You will see the rubber on the street. My holeshot little better, smashing second gear is where i see the most improvement. Hooks up way quicker . I also think my rear end handles bumps better:) Next step upper n lower rear control arms.

    Ordered on Sunday, received on Tuesday. Very simple to install, can be done on your back, with car properly lifted and supported with floor jacks. Cannot verify what gains I have gotten at this time.

    Swar bar 8.8" Rear Support GT500

    April 23, 2012

    This product is exactly what the back end of a GT500 should come with! The axle is now stable and feels solid under the car, before it felt like it was going to be ripped out. My last dyno on a mustang dyno was 535 RWHP. The car launches better and does not go sideways. This product helps deliver MORE power to the ground. Install was very easy and self explanatory.

    Nice fit, rear feels more solid

    January 05, 2012

    Pretty easy install out side the fact that it did not fit a 2012 gt without modification. Axle has a air vent which was in the way of driver side clamp. I had to machine a hole in the clamp so it would clear. No big problem but it did slow down the install. I also painted the bar red so it matched the other braces that I have installed. Looks great and It does hold the axle straight.

    The Swarr Bar has been on my Mustang for 3 years now and after over a hundred passes, it's still preforming well. Not only does the Swarr Bar plant the rear end for a good launch but it is where I hook up my tow straps.

    Superior Upgrade

    June 25, 2013

    This is a quick easy install. I took several hours just becuase I was cleaning up the axle while the car was on jacks. It's amazing how much better the car performs now. I used to fishtail almost all the way thru second gear before she'd hook up and go. Now there's some minor squirm right before the tires grab pavement and she LEAPS forward. I really didn't expect $200 to make this big of an improvement! If you like to drive fast, you NEED this. Cornering abilities have vastly improved as well. Corners I used to slide around, I can now dive in hard and rocket out. THANKS AMERICAN MUSCLE!!!

    More stable in turns, great for drifting.

    December 21, 2013

    The product is well made, and high quality. I would recommend this product to anyone wanting to improve the cars handling when under throttle in the apex of a turn. The backend drifts out smoothly and predictably giving the driver more confidence. The only challenges were drilling two 3/8 holes into the housing for two included bolts. The other challenge was replacing the 8 short bolts that clamp onto the axel with 8 longer bolts. The included short bolts were difficult to thread, so I replaced them with longer bolts making it MUCH easier to thread the nut(process was difficult because I was on my back working blindly under the car).
