Without knowing part numbers or manufacturer, it be rather difficult to match up one shock to what you currently have. Might consider ordering up a new matching pair so you know exactly what you have.

We don't know. You should try to contact the person who purchased/installed them for info. They are clearly aftermarket items. Have you noticed the severe angle that your stock front drive shaft is at? That ain't good at all. You're gonna need a custom drive shaft with at least one cv end. I strongly advise you against operating this vehicle in 4x4 mode as it is now. Whoever did the "monster truck" style lift on this looks like they maybe got in over their head and either didn't know what they were doing, or ran out of funds to complete the job properly.

Yes, if you click on the store link at the top of the page, then scroll down to drivelines, you will see a long travel front shaft with an upgrade option for a cv joint available here through IHPA. The rear shaft May well need attention too. You've got a crap-ton of lift to deal with. The spring over is roughly 5.5" alone. Add a 4" spring lift to that and you're at almost ten inches total, aka crap-ton. Most Scout owners run less than six inches total suspension lift on their rigs.

The standard ends that accept universal joints are called yokes which is what you have now. They're fine for stock suspension height and mild lifts. Once you get above four inches of lift, the stock parts won't cut it. The custom ends that are used in extreme angle and duty applications utilize constant velocity or cv joints. Take a look at the product I suggested and that should give you a better idea.

Before you buy new driveshafts I would have the caster angle checked (should be 2-6 degrees, anything less than zero degrees is bad) and get a full inspection. Do a google search for a 4x4 offroad shop in your area.
