Default Can someone explain how to determine rake?

So when doing a revalve through SD, is rake something to specify? I'd assume so b/c:

How do you determine it?

My proposed setup:

91 NA
NA Bilsteins
450/300 (QA1/Eibach)
6"/7" spring length
12.0"-12.25" F / 12.5"-12.75" R ride height
RB front tubular sway
NB top hats
FCM bump stops
Ebay sleeves

Also, is damping a factor you need to specify as well?

If they have your proposed ride height range that should be what they need in that regard. If they're doing a proper revalve they'll need to know your corner weights/spring rates/ride height/intended use mostly.
