If stuff does settle out will it help if I turn the jugs over and store them upside down for a month or two and then alternate turning them over every month or so or is the only way to get everything back in suspension to shake it?
Unfortunately I have a few leakers already sitting upside down!Don’t overthink it. You will likely have a leaker storing them upside down.
Just give older oil a bit of a shake before opening and pouring.

This has been said here before, and it's one of the most ignorant comments I've heard wrt motor oil. What was in the ground for so many years in no way resembles the oil that's put into your engine. What goes into the engine has been processed to the extreme, is composed of many parts including highly processed base stocks, some of which were never in the ground, at least in their current form, additives that never spent a moment in the earth, and many of those that did have been so highly modified Mother Nature would never recognize them.Well everyone seems to have their own ideas on this the money hungry Oil giants will tell you probably around five years. I've ran over 7 year old oil in the Toyota and got a UOA it looked absolutely fine the add PAC looked absolutely normal. This oil has sat in the ground over a million years and still works. Come on!
