I think, it will be easier to connect an Arduino to your Raspberry pi. The arduino get the Information from the pi and will send it to the Servomotors.

The same like here:

There is also the code to send the Infos to your Arduino. You need to install rosserial on your pi(including the arduino IDE, see tutorial ) and copy the code from the Servo-controller-example for your motors. You need to extend the code for your setup.
