What this does is transfer the load to the strongest part of the joint. Vertically mounted joints take lateral loads through the bearing races and that just helps them wear out sooner. Think about it, your shocks and limit straps absorb the up and down motion, the races are forced to absorb the lateral motion and act as limit straps.
Setting up all of your joints this way is not a practical solution due to the vulnerability of the bolt but it makes perfect sense for the uppers.
Another benefit of using these is that you can increase triangulation by not having to deal with space needed for the bolt in between the joints and you can place them very close together. We leave 1/2" between them.
Yes they will, they can use a joint from 1" overall width to 3" overall. The joints in the picture are 1.25" heims with misalignment making them 2 5/8" wide, the same size as most of that type of joint.
