But if you're boot loader is unlocked then you can just flash a CWM Root-zip. Much simpler.

The way is: you can't root .587 ics!
Follow this giude: [ROOT][ICS][Locked bootloader] for ICS 4.0.4
You must replace all "ST18i_4.1.B.0.431" to "ST18i_4.1.B.0.587" in the text.
So you need flash 4.0.3 kernel (only the kernel, not the whole rom). Root, cwm. And flash back 4.0.4 .587 kernel.

P.s.: Your setting says: bootloader unlock allowed: yes. (you are lucky) You can unlock your bootloader and flash custom kernel. If you do this: You can try all custom rom, and kernels, and in custom kernel is cwm inside, and all custom roms are rooted by default

This thread may help you, There it is Arc S, Download the kernels(stock) for Ray and follow the method mentioned in the thread and that should work for sure
