I'm thinking the AM Sr spings, they are made for a coupe hardtop bit will give the Convert a little extra drop..

H&R Race springs are a 1.5" drop. But they are stiff. A soft ride and lower car don't really go hand in hand. If you want a smooth rode either cit your stock springs or go with the SR springs
