yes drive in forward, and leave it there till you finish the job.

I always use a complete kit with housing.

Replace the shift shaft bushing also.

The lower must not move and be level if you choose to replace the bushing, again the lower must be level and not move, i use my shop vice.

I usually crank the bow down on a trailer, drive maybe 1/3 up.

I sit on a milk crate, seeing as I'm older then dirt.

Doesn't matter, drop the lower turn it over.
