my preference is 1) 18 years term for all new justices (with old justices grandfathered) and 2) every President appoint one justices every odd-numbered years, death and retirement is ignored.

Minimal change and stable appointment at price of unusual and varied number of justices.

Emeritus judges. After 18 years on the Supreme Court, you still sit on the court, hear evidence, and write opinions. It's just that your vote doesn't count, and the President can put a new guy in alongside you. Alternatively:
"No person who, solely on account of age, is eligible for any federal benefit, shall hold any federal judicial, legistlative, or executive position."
