Replace it. I wouldn't run the 5.0 without it. You risk bending the chassis.

You are trying to keep the driveshafts level by raising the diff for lower ride heights.

You are also altering CG slightly when changing diff height .

The dogbones are their most efficient and free when they are flat and straight out from the diff. Anytime the dogbones are at an angle from the diff and you are on throttle the drive line will want to straighten back up again. For example if you are heavy on throttle and the diff is sitting lower, the drivetrain will be trying to straighten out and force the rear end of the buggy upward. These opposing forces of the rear end squatting with throttle and the dogbones trying to straighten back out will effectively drive the tires harder into the surface and create a stronger on throttle bite.

As drivers change the suspension for different track surfaces via the axle heights, there has to be a matching adjustment at the diff or else the dogbone plunge gets all out of whack and you start hitting the dogbones on the outdrives and stuff. So as they mentioned above it's mainly to keep the geometry the same when switching suspension around.

If you were to keep your suspension the same and just adjust the diff height. Lower = more on throttle bite, more responsive off throttle. Higher = buggy is a little freer on throttle and more stable off throttle.
