An inch higher is typical. Do you have an AAL (Add-a-leaf)? If so, and if you really want it exactly level, you could probably cut a little off the ends of the AAL. Or just throw some weight in the back.

Some say settling will occur but I never noticed any settling after a year with my lift.

The truck is raked from factory. If you lift it the same amount front and rear, it's going to remain raked.

Frankly, you should do so. Otherwise the ass will sag when it's loaded.

If you dont like the rake it has you could just get a bigger spacer for the front
