Well.. I just pulled everything out of the box. No springs. Just the struts, boots, and other installation parts. I emailed BMWPartsPro, and he said that according to BMW, you only need the struts.

However

I also called Steve Thomas BMW (their affiliate dealer), and the parts guy there said he thinks I might need springs as well.

You're right. There is no way the stock springs will work with different ARBs, struts, etc. Unless there is some German magic Perhaps BMW is making an assumption that it's being installed on Sport suspension?

It really shouldn't be this hard. Keep me posted please. I've also got my contact at BMW Canada looking into it.
