GT Convertible - different springs/shocks/struts?

I wouldn't think so, but some packages do say "coupe only", anyone have experience with this? Thanks!

I had a 2005 vert and the springs are definitely different. The weight distribution of the roof requires a different shock or the rear will sit more than the front if you are lowering. Shocks and struts were the same.

Sorry, different spring. Shocks the same.

The Anti-Sway Bars (Both front, and Rear) are also of a smaller Diameter on 2006-2014-MY Convertable Stangs.

Thanks Sean, also good to note.

The MM handling pack works with both coupe/convertible, or so the team there says, I'm still digging into it to get to the bottom of it.

Go to an online ford parts catalog and look up the part numbers.

The rear sway bar is way different. It has different bends to it so it can clear the body brace bars the Vert's have. Also the springs are different to carry the extra weight between the two models, coupe or vert.
