Mounting the lever on the hub above the swingarm gives clearance and a measure of protection from damage you might get say riding in a rut or splitting the gap betwen two rocks on a trail.

Unless you are using the TA in extreme off road conditions this is not needed.
I think the interference between the rod and swingarm causes more issues than if you just run it as stock in the low position, especially with long travel suspension.
You are right! Thanks!
