If you are interested in Rear Steer... why not build a rear diff with knuckles on the ends of the tubes... use a hydraulic cylinder to turn it... Just need to use a sensor to detect center point again if you use it...

That's the peice I'm talking about. Already have the peices to build the axle part, but the control for it is what interest me. It appears to use a shaft from the rackand oinion in the front, but has some controler to keep the rear under control. I know the new chevs can have rear steer on them and it doesn't work at highway speeds. Just thinking it moght be more practical then using a hydrolic ram and a lockout.

you can use a rotory valve off of a forklift to steer the rear. that would make the rear steering more accurate.
