Most of the older straight-axle trucks use a side-mounted swinging pitman arm, so instead of a traditional drop pitman arm the RC kit came with a steering block. The block uses taller studs and raises the mounting position of the steering arm on the knuckle. This helps ease the steering by reducing the operating angles but does add leverage to the steering knuckle.
