David, the rear steer is caused by two things, the first being the lack of stiffness, and the second being different balls joint types. Your design of suspension should not suffer from either issue. The main problem, as I understand it, is that the rear inboard pickup points are in the wrong place - the lower arms should pivot *under* the chassis tube, and the top should also be moved slightly, I believe. The effect of the pick up points being where they are, I don't fully understand, but I believe it causes a jacking effect, which ultimately makes the car display rather undesireable tendancies.

As for the front, assuming you have the same setup as me, you bolt the steering arm to the rover stub axle, using two of the bolt holes that were originally used to hold the stub axle to the rover rear beam.
