I currently and have always used the manufacturer stock position in terms of my fork tube height in relation to the upper clamp, but have heard of 1-10mm adjustments over clamp in order to improve handling, any truth to this, and also with change in rear height, does an adjustment need to be made to the front and if so, how would one determine best position?

I raised my fork tubes about 2-5 cm, and it definitely made the steering more sensitive. Too much and you could end up with it being twitchy. I'd bet there's some way to calculate the steering forces and tube drop, but *I* don't know it. Trial and error, I suppose.
