4 link calculator help. Long arm tj

This is where I'm at Ive got a 90's ford king pin 60 front and a sterling 10.25 and Im trying to build a single triangular 4 link rear and a 3 link front with a track bar. I've came across the 4 link calculator . I understand most of it I just am not sure how you get the lengths of the control arms from scratch ( like the calculation portion of it) I've read countless forums on it , the 4 wheeler mag write up on how to do it on paper and a couple different ones . But like I said do you just estimate where your control arms go under the jeep and start from there or what? Right now I'm focusing on the rear then the front .
Here's the specs of the jeep I'm going to build :
Tj with 4-5.5 inch springs , high lines , 8 inch rear stretch, 103 wheelbase ( 1 inch front stretch) , 42 sxii's, Dana 60 front , 10.25 rear , 5.13s , stock 4.0
Suspension details : Johnny joints, 2 inch x.250 Dom tubing , 3 link with track bar front 1 inch stretch , triangulated 4 link rear with 8 inch stretch . please help!!!!
