Lowering a Convertible?

I know that the usual eibach springs that everyone gets around here supposedly won't work because of the extra weight on the convertible. Any suggestions for lowering a vert? Thanks.

Same problem here!
I just bought a 2007 convertible w/sport pkg.
Anybody lowered one of these?
I'm sure the Eibach's are too low, but H&R's look like they might work?

Question Lowering G6 Convertible

Did you ever get an answer to lowering the convertible with H&R springs. Thanks

I've lowered my 07 G6 GT with H&R lowering springs and it looks much better. Correct me if I'm wrong but why would a vert suspension be any different.

The vert weighs like 400-500 lbs more than the sedan and coupe G6s. And when the top is down, ALL that weight is in the trunk. So a higher spring-rate spring would be ideal for the rear end, Front end too probably.
