will sedan coil-overs fit a convertible?

A fellow member is selling his sedan coilovers.
I have tried searching, but can't confirm that sedan coilovers are going to be the same spring rate as a convertible.
The convertible will weigh more, as it is a 6cyl and the sedaan is a 4cyl, let alone the fact that the convertible weighs nearly 300kg more anyway.

Yes, sedan coilover kits will fit the convertibles. However, the rear may sit a bit low because of the added weight of the convertibles.
