I think the AX10 axles are the same just the rear has strait adapters. May havve strait axles inside. What you need is the axle (if you have the strait ones), Cs and knucles for the front and take off the strait adapters and install.

you just have to mirror the front axle. the same servo you have on the front wil work. something like a hitech hs645 would be fine. axial sells a rear steer kit. you can link the servos with a y harness and not need 3 channels. you can't run a comp with rear steer though, you would be better using your 3rd channel for a dig to get better turning radius. then you would still be comp legal

depends on how you mount the servo. if it crab walks you can flip the servo over on the mount and switch your link to the other side. or you can get a reversing y if you have that problem.

the reversing y's also normally have an adjustment to help you center the second servo to trim out the rear
