If your happy that is all that counts.
But for general info....Unless
IRO cut the threaded stub length more than necessary to keep the threaded stub from bottoming out on the gusset plate like it does in picture 1 above the nut is captured on the inside as well. It is trapped by the gusset plate once you screw the adjustment in where it should go with 3 or 4" of lift. If you think about it, one way or the other the adjustment can not turn or unscrew even if the lock nut loosens. So it is quite possible you are worrying about a non issue.
Yes...IRO may have whined about it but they figured out I was correct about having to bottom out the adjustment at 4" of lift. To accomplish that IRO modified the stub so the nut to can be moved to the inside. They should change their advertising and the picture on their web site and alert people to this fact. But then they would be admitting the adjustment is useless with lifts up to around 5 or 6" unless you buy adjustable LCAs.
