I had the same problem with the Harrier and this is how I fixed it:
In the memory LOD you need to create (or assign, if you are using a memory LOD already) several vetexes as the axis points for your undercarriage (this includes the wheel, strut, etc). Which would be where the pivot of the wheel assembly is, ie. in the wing or fuselage.
The named pivots are:
osa leveho kola (presumably the starboard wing wheel assembly)
osa praveho kola (presumably the port wing wheel assembly)
osa predniho kola (presumably the nose wheel assembly)
I hope this helps.
BTW Ive just posted a request for help to set the pivot animation in the right direction.

Have you set the mass for the vertexes in the geometry LOD? (select all vertexes and use the mass window) If it weights nothing it cannot steer.
when i make up the mass he starts bouncing or just gets sucked up in the ground very strange
but mass when i put in 60 what does it do (sorry but i want 2 learn this part)
mass-value = Kg I think (but not absolutely sure). So you should enter something between 15000 to 25000 as value (depends on if you create an attack or fighter plane), since a F/A-18 has aprox. that weight.
thnx guys for your support ill try it now on the plane
Wohooo it work i can steer! you guys thnx thnx thnx
and kegetys i found a bug in the Hawk its a small one
when i am standing on the runway and i pull the gear up the plane hangs in the air LOL try it it looks very funny
