The block for the steering keeps the geometry the same. The drag link isn't adjustable. So when you lift the truck the link gets at an extreme angle. Changing the angle effectively shortens the drag link.

If you don't put the block in, or get a drop pitman arm, or adjustable drag link. You end up not being able to turn sharp in one direction.
