If the length of the assembled strut is the same, then they'll fit. They will just have a different spring rate to what was designed for your car.

I have AU springs in my EL. AU springs are about 25mm longer the EL, and tapered, but with the right shocks they're fine.

It's the overall assembled length you need to check.

I've had Dobisport Ba XR8 front springs in my AU2 6cyl for 2yrs, no probs at all.
Thats with the AU2 shocks.
I'm pretty sure the AU2/3 front suspension is very similar to the B series.
It may just be ride height is different using the same spring.

AU has unique springs for the rear IRS and Live axle (same shocks afaik)
AU-BF Front springs/shocks are interchangeable.
BA-FG rear springs/shocks are interchangeable.
FG front springs/shocks are unique.
