should if you get the right spacing, IMHO, the AM Racing Torq Thrusts look better on the old ones, Bullitts are more for the new ones

if you use the 01-04 bullits you will need a 1 inch adapter in the front and a 1/2 spacer in the rear. if you do the 05-08 bullits you will need 1.1/2 inch adapter int ehfront and 1 inch in the rear
