I have my WR450 in the shop getting a fork seal replaced and fluid changed. I weigh 175. Should I change height of fluid? Also I have my buddies WR426 in the shop for samething but he is 225. Any thoughts. Thanks

raising your oil level will reduce bottoming. Don't do it unless you are bottoming. Occasional (not severe) bottoming is OK >> it shows you are efficiently using up your suspension travel.
