Los Angeles / Orange County - Need WDH Guru

I just moved my equal-i-zer WDH from my Xterra to a 2015 F150. This required using the standard size shank rather than the long shank I had been using (receiver is 6" lower on the F150.) After getting everything where I thought it should be the AS rests on the ball nicely, but I don't feel like the entire hitch setup is properly adjusted. Not sure how accurate this method is, but when I measured the before and after height at each wheel well the fronts were about 1/4 inch higher after adding the tongue weight while the rears were about 1.5 inches lower.

I will be driving down to SoCal from Las Vegas tomorrow for several days. There seems to be a lot more experts down there than here in town so if anyone knows a trusted individual who could help me optimize our setup I would happily drive anywhere in Orange County or LA County. Thanks!
