it looks to me like it clamps around the plastic tubing on the body and strengthens the plastic joint. it looks well made, maybe a little bit of overkill.

You will break the shock caps first. I have already done it and the upper mount is still perfect.

It goes on the back of the frame. The benefit is putting load onto more screws and onto metal rather than onto plastic. It's a worth while upgrade for long term durability. I'd also upgrade the shock caps. Plastic shock caps was a mistake on this kit.

I installed mine yesterday it installs on outside of frame where stock location is. It moves shocks back and below.
Kind of a pain to install shocks when installed. I bolted shock on new piece then installed on frame.
