20% seems a bit high. I have read that the recommended tongue weight ratio should be 12-15%. Not sure if 20% would cause any problems or not.
The weight differences just don't seem right with a 1220 lb. tongue. Comparing to my setup: Last time I weighed, I had 720 lb. tongue weight. When not using the spring bars, the tongue weight took 300 lbs. off of my steer axle, and added 1020 lbs to the rear axle. On your truck, you are only losing 140 lbs. from your steer axle, and adding 1360 lbs to your rear axle. I just can't get my head around that. Of course, I have a 1/2 ton vs your 3/4 ton, but still, it seems the trailer should be taking more weight off of the steer axle when the spring bars are missing. What cab/bed setup do you have ??
Overall, it looks like a good setup with you getting the weight back on the steer axle with the WDH.
