If there's no difference in the suspension for the convertible vs. hardtop, i would recommend the F-sports springs and sways. They made my IS350 handle much better. I bought mine from Westminster Lexus.

i think the convertible is heavier so the spring rates are going to be diff. i was looking @ the f-sport stuff but it might not be as low as i'd like

Don't get Tokico Blue Shocks + H-Tech Tein Springs.

That's my setup. Bumpy.
