Let me know if there a few posts I missed. I wanted the sticky to have the meaty points and how to go about getting it done...leaving some of the thought process out of it, and leaving it here in the this thread.
I would HIGHLY recommend starting with a complete car, it would nearly be impossible to find all the parts individually needed to swap it correctly.
Heres a list of the stuff needed from a 1st gen 4WS (sure the 2nd gen is pretty similar):
-Rear steering rack
-Rear control arms
-Rear trailing arms
-Rear 4WS Sway bar
-Complete wiring harness (and I mean complete, the 4ws wires go through the entire car)
-4WS Error Light (for dash)
-Fuel transfer Control Unit
-Front steering rack
-Front 4WS Sway bar
-Steering angle transfer shaft
-Front-to-rear P/S lines
-Resivor-to-front steering gear lines
-P/S resivor with low-fluid sensor
-4WS P/S Pump (basiclly two pumps in one)
-P/S Bracket (4WS specific)
-Transmission speed sensor
-Shifter mount and shift rod
