Alltracs have equal length axles and shafts. So you pull the shafts off them and you have the 2 outers.

MR2s have a short stubby shaft on the driver side, and a long intermediary shaft (known as the carrier bearing shaft or carrier bearing stub). So you take the MR2 inners, and attach the alltrac outers to them. You also need the MR2 carrier bearing bracket housing (or the solara one if it has it) and the bracket housing supports.
