Does this seem over adjusted?

Here's my setup. 2019 DC limited 4x4 towing a 2018 keystone cougar 29bhs (just over 7k dry). Using a Husky Centerline TS

I've been tweaking my WDH due to the new truck. The ass is slightly higher on this one due to the 5100's only being on the bottom setting as opposed to the middle setting on the last tundra. Per the Husky manual my measurements are all pretty much spot on as far as the ball height, lift bracket height and spring bar height. Bars are nice and parallel to the frame. I'm a little worried I may be slightly over adjusted and I am thinking of removing one washer from the hitch head to reduce the spring bar angle before we hit the road tomorrow. Wanted to bounce my numbers off you guys just to check my thinking.

Measured at fender wells centered with axles:

-Unloaded
Front 38 1/4"
Rear 39 1/2"

-Loaded NO WDH
Front 38 3/4"
Rear 37"

-Loaded with WDH
Front 38"
Rear 38 1/2

So my concern is with the fact that I've pulled the front down slightly lower that its unloaded height. So I'm thinking pull one washer out just to take a little tension of the bars and distribute a bit less load. Am I tracking right here??

A picture is worth a 1000 words. You don't want to remove all the sag with the wdh but you want to run as close to level as possible.

I wen't ahead and pulled one washer out. Final measurements ended up being 38 1/8" up front and 38 1/4" in the rear. So almost dead level. Towed great. Here's a pic after all adjustments. So all in all I've got an inch and a quarter of squat in the rear and the front is down an eighth inch.
