it varies jeep to jeep. i have just a drop pitman arm and it works, but it doesnt for everyone, it depends on the springs. a jb steering bracket works well and is relatively cheap for most applications though

you will need a SYE if you dont have one. you will need to wait until its lifted to get a good measurement

i had to get mine lengthened. i stretched one inch at the same time though

iirc, theres a tag with the ratio on it. or you can open it and count teeth, or you can spin the yoke by hand.

Obi-Wan's New Toy is a good site with info on everything you're asking about. theres also quite a few SOA threads here with lots of info.

I run a high steer system with a stock pit man arm, no sway bar, trac bar, or stabilizer. I would definitely recommend a high steer and lift it then get your measurements for the drive shafts.
