Not even sure of the theory behind that. Assume the upper link is fixed to the bracket and the bracket is allowed to slide on the axle-side bolt?

The silver thing seem like it's for to keep adjustment as the main part of the control arm is slotted (black color in the pic)

Why even put a complicated thing on there? Why not delete one side upper altogether?

Bad idea. The passenger side "upper control arm" has already been "deleted" on this lift kit  ;D

It's mostly for to adjust caster.

I think the same thing. I'm gonna put it on as-is and when confirmed the caster/pinion angle is correct then I'll weld the bracket thingy solid to the control arm but I'll know more once I have it in my hand. If it's not some thin sheet metal.

I never understood why this exists. Its no different than a normal adjustable upper arm. One of the reasons I raised an eyebrow when I read you ordered the IRO kit.  ???

I had it on my first XJ (pictured in the first post in this thread) and it didn't have this thing (fixed). I was very happy with this lift kit so I got another one.
