We show that the Bernays-Sch\\"onfinkel-Ramsey fragment ($\\exists^* \\forall^*$-sentences) extended with a restricted form of linear integer arithmetic is decidable via finite ground instantiation. The identified ground instances can be employed to restrict the search space of existing automated reasoning procedures considerably, e.g., when reasoning about quantified properties of array data structures formalized in Bradley, Manna, and Sipma\'s array property fragment. Typically, decision procedures for the array property fragment are based on an exhaustive instantiation of universally quantified array indices with all the ground index terms that occur in the formula at hand. Our results reveal that one can get along with significantly fewer instances.},\n}\n'
