I don't even remember. I think that extra half inch because when I did my tbars my truck was perfectly level if I remember correctly. I only really put them on because I tow often and hated the sag look.

The stock rake isn't too bad. I just don't want an insane amount of rake.

And depending on how much height I get from the crank, I should be relatively close to the same amount of rake.
