Default Fork Rack on a 89 Wicked?

Walt Works is making a custom fork for me, and I'm trying to confirm axle to crown height at 395mm, and the rake at 35mm on a 1989 Wicked. Any info would be great. Thanks guys!

I've heard that the 89 wicked had a 385mm axle to crown, with a 35mm rake. Are you sure you have the correct year? Please let me know. Thanks!

The measurements come directly from my fork in 89 subtle changes were made to make room for tire size increase 2.2/ 2.5 tires. Those tires were quite popular for their float-ability and larger contact patch on rocks. I rode 1.65/ 1.75 for better maneuverability and better speed in single track.
