You have to cut a slot into the axle. Basically 2-3mm on both halves so the steering knuckles can pivot. I just used some wire cutters.

You're more than likely going to have to remove part of that bumper so your servo saver won't hit.

Like I said, a dremel isn't needed, I used wire cutters and they cut through the plastic fine.

Looks good, but do you have enough throw each way? I tried to match how much throw the truck had before to what I modded it to, and i had to take out part of the screw hole to do so, and yours are intact, that's why I ask.
