Comfortable Springs/Struts

My front suspension is starting to give out a little. I live in an area with bad roads, bumpy and occasionally gravel. I don't want a lowered performance replacement unless it's a stock ride quality. Keep in mind I drive a convertible so i need a set for that application as well. Also on a budget so nothing too outrageous. Any help is appreciated. Comfortable and absorbent is top priority, not so much cornering sharpness.
Thank you!!

Get a 1" drop, 99-04's ride pretty high stock so a 1" drop should be fine on bad roads and still give you a good upgrade in handling and looks.

Look into the Ford Racing C springs. They have a spring rate that's almost stock.

Yeah I was looking at those this morning! What's the difference between C and B though?

What about struts also, I don't want super stiff, not heavy duty stuff.

I honestly don't know much about the springs, I just remember seeing the spring rate when I was looking for my springs. for struts I would go either Koni or Bilstein
