Hey guys. I have been researching because I have recently swapped to a 4th gen 3sgte and currently using a s53 tranny. Need to upgrade the tranny soon. So of the things needed to swap is the shifter cables from an alltrac. And a north to south crossmember. Along with different axles. And I'm having a hard time finding an alltrac crossmember. And so I got to thinking. What crossmember do 6th gen Celica guys use when they swap to a 3sgte? They dont have an allrac crossmember. Do they all have to custom fab theirs?

I just used my standard ST162 N/S crossmember. I'll try to dig back and figure out what the 184 needed (one of them was funky and needed a different crossmember).

The 162 vs 165 shifter cables were identical -- I didn't need the Alltrac model.

The axles you'll need MR2 inner stubs (LSD/non-LSD depending on transmission) and then Alltrac outer shafts.

5th/6th gen swaps with the E153 need the corresponding year alltrac crossmember. I'd assume the 6th gen guys just get a ST205 clip and use the crossmembers from that.

Yes.

Try CarPart. You may be able to find a st185 getting parted there or on alltrac.net. I've seen a couple there in the last few months.
