I disagree with Twin boat... I know back when I had my half ton I was very happy with getting the front axle back to its unloaded weight...

In fact, this quote comes directly from the Equilizer Hitch Installation manual

Good adjustment:
You have most likely achieved good weight distribution adjustment if
your measurement on Line C of the weight distribution setup table shows
that front wheel well measurement is
at least halfway back
to the original
uncoupled measurement.
See Line C on Weight Distribution Setup Table
(p. 16) and Figure 19 below
. It should never be lower than Line A

In other words, bringing your front axle weight back to very close or even with unloaded weight is ideal... Equalizer tells you (per their manual) to not set the hitch to lower (increase the weight) of the front axle above the unhitched measurement.
