I’m going to assume that you are talking about the front axle since the rear is already SOA. I’d be more concerned about the caster angle rather than the pinion. Just set the new perches parallel to the stock ones and you should be good to go.

If you happen to be referring to the rear axle; Where you set the pinion angle will depend on what type of drive shaft you will be running.

maroon 1987 Grand Wagoneer. stock for now...

Yep, caster is more important than pinion in front. The advice to make your spring over perches parallel to the spring under is spot on.
