In a situation where there is heavy vibration, water, and overall movement its best to use two different metals. One reason is rust but as with your cam which is a hard metal it sits in a brass bushing in the engine, the two metals , one hard and one soft will wear less and therefore not loosen more than two hard metals, or two soft metals. In other words the steel lift blocks will wear a hole through the differential or thin out the leaf springs which are much more costly to replace than a piece of aluminum, its the weak link theory, leave a weak link so that it breaks before an expensive part does. heres another reason, its not safe to put lift blocks in the front of any truck.
