It's been done, but for correct geometry, aero etc, the front should be a little lower. My 08 is just 1/4" lower on the front, tire to fender lip.

Thanks, I expected as much. what does 4404 have for springs to bring about a lower look in the back but keep
geometry. 1147 is 100% factory still but the stance drives me nuts when i look at how high the back is.

I'm on stock springs. Measure your spaces tire to fender lip. Maybe your front springs are saggy a bit.

Not all Bullitts are created equal when it comes to Springs. Here is a discussion from several years ago discussing the different Springs Ford used in the 08/09 Bullitt.

Bullitt Springs Usage

Very interesting discussion.

I remember reading that spring information and emeditly went out and looked.it has what it should and drive's on the stiffer side. It sits as it should, I just prefer no rake as it reminds. Me of cars with air shocks. I would like 1 inch lower in back unless its damaging to the drive train.
