You both have been doing your tranny homework. You get an A for the day.
The left axle is in front and the right is in the rear. Note the size difference as willwren has pointed out and the different splines courtesy of Damemorder. (the male end for the right side is taped up to prevent any corrosion)
The crisis is over and the car is back down on all fours again. New struts, left axle and sway bar end links. Now I can get back to the original alignment problem. I swear, everything I touch causes something else to go wrong in this car. The good news is that the parts car is a dream to harvest parts from... very cooperative.
