Stock, wanting to lower

I have read a lot about lowering. but haven't found much on lowering convertibles.

Is it the same?

I have looked for springs but some of them say not for verts, so that makes me weary.

Everything about the car is stock and I have had it for about a year now. Just want to make it my own

They sell coil springs rated for convertibles.. just have to read the description on some of them.
Spring rates are different between a coupe & vert.

I believe that the factory springs on my Bullitt are actually lowering springs for a convertible.
They are the Ford Racing "C" springs.

I don't know where you found those numbers but the spring rates for convertibles should be higher than coupes due to the increased weight of the 'verts.
