To answer this, you really ought to get everything into the Jeep, and then measure your angles. That will tell you whether you need to cut and turn, really.

On my last Toy/Diamond front, I had the pinion up an extra 5*, which gave me a prefect angle. That was relative to a minitruck axle, I don't know what the stock specs are on the 60 axles. The minis don't have tons of caster built into them anyway.

Put it together, and just tack the front perches and then measure your joint angles. YOu will need to get your drivetrain placed right to know where your t-case will be, and what tilt angle it will have. Likely a CV at the t-case and then just a standard u joint at the axle.
