now..you cant just take a 404 fornt end and turn it around and make a rear steer, the tire would turn in reverse right??

so how would you convert a front end, to make it a rear steer? could you take a rear 3rd member and stick in the front? i dont care about offset..

any1 ever made a mog rear steer?? Run dog???

I am building one right now. And as Air Bag said, turning a front around to use it as rear steer will NOT turn the wheels backward.

As some people recommend, I am swapping the gear reduction hubs side for side in the rear to keep the helical cut gears turning the direction they did up front.

Last note: turning a front around without changing anything will net a passenger side offset of about 3.5".

sweet, the 404 is offset to the driver a little bit stock right?
Yes. I believe about 3.5" from center. Can cause oilpan to axle clearance issues on some vehicles.
