Yes, it stops the extreme sagging seen with high HP trucks, therefore keeping more weight on the front axle.

It also keeps the weight on the rear axle, lets it dig in.
Another thing it does is keeps the sleds weight off the ground if you are running the proper hitch height (or keeps you from losing hitch height when you are pulling).
