If you use a conventional steering box and drag link with a triangulated suspension, you will likely have bump steer. The axle needs to move in an arc that matches the motion of the drag link. Side steer may work better than cross steering, depending on the link geometry.
Q&D, I was going to use a conventional steering box for this project. Since I'm new to this, I guess I need to look into side steer. Would you have any references for laying out the 4-Link and making a conventional steering box work properly?

Like I said, I'm still in the design stages, so any suggestions are are very much welcomed.
