How important is it for the ram to be centered?

It doesn't need to be centered

It doesn't have to be center, just don't get to crazy with it. Keep in mined the shorter the tie rod the more aggressive arch it will have through the steering cycle over the longer side. Kinda like a short arm suspension vs a long arm.

You could use the cover like Chad and I did on a jeep we fixed. This is the cylinder and truss I made and it was a 60 also.

Here is an example of a off center cylinder. Take note of the angle the short arm has to be in relative to the long side.

Long story short it does matter. Not the end of the world if a little off center though.
