like if the fronts on a set of ramps, will the back come down enough to put the rear cradle back in easy? or would the front need to be lowered again first?

Is this a hypothetical or are you out of jack stands?
With the front end up it'll take more lift under the front of the cradle me thinks.

It really depends on how high the front of the cradle is as you slide it into position. With the cradle on the legs of the cherry picker, the front wheels need to be on the ground.

Unless you plan to raise the cradle into the chassis or your cradle dolly has the cradle 18" off the ground, you will likely find that the front wheels need to be on the ground.
