Hi Josh,

Thanks for your email and comments.
Yes all the karts on the kartbuilding website do not have suspension (at 
this stage anyways.

The following website has information on suspension and frame design:

You can also see a video of making a kart with suspension on a recent blog 
article I wrote. See: 

Apart from that, I don't have any more information on details for steering 
setup. You could always go ahead build the kart, and modify the steering 

Best of luck,
