Rear UCA length and pinion question...aftermarket DS

Ok, think I'm going to get this new Tatton rear driveshaft finally installed on the Jeep this week...been procrastinating long enough. Have the Currie rear UCA's to adjust the pinion angle. What's a good starting point lengthwise for the Curries for a 2dr with a 3.5" lift to get a "good" starting pinion angle so I can adjust accordingly? I know I've seen a CA starting point length for this application somewhere around here and just can't find the thread or info online.

This is prob a stupid question but since i am going to be doing the same thing in a couple of months here goes:

Do you need to shorten or lenghten the upper control arm from stock when adding aftermarket driveshaft?

from the looks of the picture, it looks like u rotate axle up so there is no angle where driveshaft meets the axles. Is that correct?

Sorry for the dumb questions. I am a driveshaft newb.
