What is different about the steering?

Because we have moved the entire power train and suspension from a front-wheel-drive car and installed it into a rear-wheel-drive car, the rear wheels are actually able to turn.  By removing the steering assembly from the Cobalt/HHR, and fastening the tie rods to mounts which are part of the GTX chassis, we have stabilized the rear wheels.  The GTX now also has the ability to adjust rear-wheel toe in or out easily.  The actual steering is accomplished by using the front components from a VW Beetle years 1969 through 1976.  The entire front suspension assembly (the beam), steering box, tie rods, & steering arms are all used.  A VW or aftermarket steering column is also used.
