Although it would be by a miniscule amount, I think the reason for loosening 
the bottom clamp and not the top one is so you don't change the trail by 
having the tubes move upwards through the top clamp during steering head

 If theres enough room and there usually is you can loosen the top triple 
tree instead of the bottom as it's easier to get at.
