amc-20, 1 piece axle and Lock-Right - Thrust block question


I have the amc-20 and a Lock-Right inside. According to the Lock-Right install. guide, i left the thrust block in the differential.

Now, i want to install my new moser 1 piece axle for a new set-up:
If i keep follow the Lock-Rights install. guide I should take out that thrust block ("if the axle is changed to another type that doesnt need end-play adj, such as a one-piece design, the thrust block may be ommited" page 3).
It doesnt seems logical to me.

I sent a question about that issue to Richmond but because of the long vacation i didnt get any answer yet and i want to know I finished that 1 piece installation asap.

Any ideas about that?
Right now the block is in the diff and the new 1 piece axles are installed.
The axles doesnt seem to stress the thrust block at all with that setup.
