The Swarr Bar: Rear Support for your Mustang


AmericanMuscle.com
Customer Service Reps are frequently asked to give local shop recommendations. Being based out of Eastern Pennsylvania makes it difficult to direct our customers that live in other parts of the country. However, if you are local to AmericanMuscle, pay attention!

There are a lot of good shops in the area, but today we’re going to profile one of our favorites: Swarr Automotive.

Based in the Collegeville, Pa. area, Swarr Auto has the capability to do almost every modification or installation. Though they specialize in transmission, suspension and rear end builds, they have excellent relationships with local paint and body shops and engine builders.

Owner Eric Swarr has been working on Mustangs forever. His father, Jim Swarr, was a legend in the racing industry, and Swarr took over the family business when his father passed away. Having worked with the best of the best, Swarr can truly be considered one of the most knowledgeable in the industry.

Besides the top-notch work done in his shop, Eric Swarr has also designed a part that provides amazing support for 8.8 rear ends. The Swarr Bar was designed for high-performance street and strip racing applications — though it will work nicely on daily drivers, too — and is an easy, bolt-on modification for any Mustang. Constructed of mild tubular steel, the Swarr Bar is TIG welded to ensure
strength and durability, and powder-coated black to last.

The torque produced by high performance Mustangs can cause the rear to flex under load. It’s not fun when it happens, and if you’re looking to prevent it, the Swarr Bar is the way to go. This part also eliminates wheel hop, getting the power to the ground where it’s needed. In an interview with Muscle Mustangs & Fast Fords, Swarr pointed out one more benefit to his part.

"It also helps with reaction time," he said. "The stiffer rear allows the car to react quicker because power is used to drive the car, not flex the rear."

So, if you’re looking for rear support that also drops reaction time and eliminates that oh-so-annoying wheel hop, swing by AmericanMuscle.com or give us a call and pick up your very own Swarr Bar.

And if you’re in the area and you’re looking for a shop, give the good folks at Swarr Automotive a call.
