    Don't know the answer but I will install SSL soon so I'm quite interested.

    Will you have a free one or are buying SSL?

    Redirect... most of the solutions for this that I know of (unless you deliberately try not to do this) are treated the same as a 301 redirect so maybe 98% of the link juice is redirected. This is very easy to do in htaccess, a quick google search should find you the proper code.

    Beware... many people trying to do the switch fail. Make sure you do some research if it's not your thing because there are numerous ways to break the site.

    I got a lot of broken links and had to fix it one after another manually.

    This is pretty common. At least it has been in my personal experience. We had to move hundreds of images b/c of a folder/redirect issue and then had to manually edit a number more. Hard linked images to http:// were also a pain and we swapped them all over to relative, site wide!, in order to fix the SSL/image issues.
