simple way is check the pedders site... brilliant catalogue on there... punch in your car and it'll spit out the part numbers you require... Then do an FG and compare numbers... If they're different... I think you can guess what that means... :P I'm like Ash... If I had to guess I'd say you'd have no hope in hell seeing the FG runs suspension based off a jaguar... Where the AU is nothing like it whatsoever...

Why be nervous? It'll take you two minutes to check the pedders site... Then you'll know before you pull it to bits...

Because you're having trouble doing your investigating and just expecting the answer I'll even link the site for you http://www.pedders.com.au/catalogue now you can find the answer all by yourself

according to that website you linked they don't fit... There is one part there titled au to bf and then a different part titled fg... So where is it you're proving that fg springs will fit an au? That website tends to imply that not even the rears will fit?

It also has the luxury classes being different parts... On the fg listed ones for example you go the right hand side have to select from 6 cyl, xr6 or xr8... They are looking less and less compatible to me...

you may? get away with it if you have the struts to match the springs...

I know BF struts & springs are different but still fit.....

Would the ba-bf sedan springs fit on an Au sedan?

as far as i can make out no, not the rears

the part code for them is different (ba is kfrl-68, au irs is kfrl-67)

happy to be corrected

ive got au struts and front springs in the front of my ba though, they are definitely interchangeable
