Default RC4WD Full Aluminum 4 Wheel Steering Help

Hey...

I'm starting to build my crawler and have the aluminum 4WS kit from RC4WD.

I didn't get instructions, so does anyone happen to have them?

According to an e-mail from them, I have to install the servos on the opposite side of the axle as you do with the normal kit.

I got that far, but I'm having some problems getting the top steering link long enough to reach the servo. I first had a servo saver on there, but tried a horn that came with the servo and still can't figure it out.

I am also having problems with some of the other hardware. Every bolt either seems too long or too short. It doesn't help that the pictures on the site for the product have the aluminum knuckles which I do not. Without any instructions, I am starting to believe that I may be missing some hardware, or have some wrong hardware.

I e-mailed them a little bit ago, but was wondering if anyone could help me out.

Instructions or some close-up shots of the steering would be great.

Thanks for the pic.

I guess I am missing some hardware since the bolts are either too long or too short.

And the servo plates are backwards, so I need to mount them on the other side of the axle.

I'm still building the chassis, so hopefully I'll have some hardware left over I can use.

Thanks,
