I think most brackets will work. The one I have experience with is the Synergy. I have a Rubicon Express adjustable track bar and Yeti no-drill top mount outer draglink assembly.

Front or rear?

Rear track bar (panhard bar) should be as close as possible to being level with the Jeep sitting at ride height (weight on the tires) with a full tank of fuel. Having the panhard bar at an angle on the rear will lead to bump steer as the vehicle goes over bumps or swells/dips in the road, leading to a somewhat less than comfortable and stable ride.

Front panhard bar should be at the same angle (or very close) as the steering link. To have these at different angles will, again, lead to bump steer issues.

How much lift? Remember with a high steer you need at least 3” of bumpstop

look inside your front coils on the coil perch there should a bump stop there. measure it. your stock upper jounce pads don't count because the squish pretty much flat.

I have what appeared to be a metal sleeve about 5 inches long and a rubber stop about 2 inches long
Am I looking at it correctly?

on the bottom side of the coil not the top, the top is the jounces and those are soft and will squish under compression. .

So on the bottom side of the coil I have a 2inch nub which I guess is the bump stop and I have 4 inch between that and the jounces
