I haven't seen any sway bars yet, I like installing them on cars they give the car a stiffer more agile feel.

Sway bars or even some aftermarket struts could help ?

KYB Gas-a-Just struts/shocks would definitely stiffen up the suspension, but there's no listing for the Chevy Trax. I put them on my Toyota P/U and it improved cornering dramatically, but are very stiff/bumpy. I wanted to put them on my Saturn Vue, but again no listing for that either.

The trouble with buying a new model is the aftermarket doesn't catch up to the car very quickly.

It might be awhile before anything becomes available.

Hi Guys, I am new here. Just signed up to the forum. I have recently installed some 45mm lowered springs in my Trax. I had the same problem finding the correct springs as nobody had anything for the Trax in Australia unless I wanted to pay twice the price I paid for them from Germany. I went searching and found them on Ebay in the UK where the Trax is an Opel Mokka. If you look up Tunershop on Ebay you will find the springs. Or just google Tunershop Woeldwide. The name of the manufacturer is H&R Springs and the product code for the set of springs is : 28845-1
This set of 4 springs cost me $310 Aussie dollars to get to my front door. Very reasonable price I thought, coming from Germany.
I have pictures of my Trax in my garage.
Cheers

These springs firmed up the ride and took that floating feeling out of the ride. I have since added the 20 inch wheels with 245/40/20 Kumho Tyres which has made it a different car to drive. Handles much better and feels great on the road.
