Default Four Wheel Steering - What rigs have you done it on?

I upgraded my Everest-10 to 4ws. I have heard its not too hard to do the same to the Gen 7.

Basic Recipe for Everest-10
2nd servo, 2nd servo plate, front side linkage, servo link, servo horn, servo y harness and servo reverser.

Anyone gotten 4ws on their rigs?

Did it with my monster Wheely King, used a couple of the low profile Savox servos with with the black Kimbrough servo savers on each servo. had already put the MIP/RCP CVDs on it and never went to straight axles in the back, so it was pretty easy to set up once I got the part.

Whats needed on the Gen 7. I haven't yet pulled the trigger on a Gen 7, still hoping to get a used one. But I want to get the 4ws parts all ready.

so I think I need
servo (screws - qty4 x 3mx8mm)
servo mount (screws - qty 3 m3x10mm counter sunk)
servo horn
steering link
y-harness and servo reverser
won't need side linkage like the everest-10 would, but I will need steering knuckles and steering mounts.

Are there any more bits I'm missing? like the axles or bearings or different screws?
