It was very level without the WD. With the WD bars it was tilted a bit towards the back.

With the HD suspension of your rig, you should figure 1/8" sag per 100lb tongue weight . That should be about 3/4" sag. Half ton suspensions usually figure 1/4" per 100lb. and lighter weight vehicles like cars up to 1/2" per 100.
