yeh it definately is... my advice with the springs is to get a suspension shop to fit them. They dont charge exorbitant labour rates like mechanics and they do it all the time. I can personally testify to BA rear springs packing a punch as i recently got smacked in the head by a lower control arm propelled by the force of one...

Oh s**t. Didn't the BF replace the BA in 2002??

Nah BA replaced the AU3 in 2002, then BAII came out in 04, and then late last year, now BFII.

Do you have any problems with them catching or did you have to play with the arches at all?
