SPOA would probably be the most common and cost effective, a google search will give up all the details on that. What will you do with the vehicle and what size tires do you intend to run?

im not a fan of the spoa. too tight for me. depends on what you are using the vehicle for and what you want to get out of the lift millertimegooney. i am installing a liftkit that lowrange pieced together for me. 1.5" shackles and 1.5" ome springs.

check out Low Range Off Road: One Stop for Suzuki and Toyota Off Road Parts call them and talk to william, or check out rock auto, but lowrange has everything you could ever want. personally i wouldnt go with the calmini, they are super stiff.

Same here, but I just went with my standard shackles. On most old Samurai, the factory springs have lost a lot of their arch and the OME springs will give you more lift than the advertise.
I only run 28" tire and didn't want to go through the ensuing modification you really should do, with a SPOA. Namely, shocks, steering, and drivelines.
