if you want a 3.7 final drive ratio, forget swapping front diffs, that is an enormous job that you don't need. just get a manual transmission that has a 3.7 final drive. any turbo manual trans will have 3.7 final drive, an RX (they are all turbo's) or an XT Turbo manual transmission will definitely have a 3.7 final drive.
in reality the 3.7 verses 3.9 final drive isn't much of a difference so just use what you have. someone did the calculations on this board, the difference isn't all that large.
for EA82's - it's not model specific for the LSD's - you just have to look. the only model that always has an LSD is an RX - all the rest could go either way.
as for the final drive ratios - i don't believe you can swap front differentials from automatics to manuals.
on the actual ratios - this information is probably already here, did you try searching? there's a "search" button up top in the gray bar. no the final drive is not only different from automatics to manuals. RX and XT Turbo's manual trans have 3.7 final drive. if turbo wagons are the same, which i think they are, then all Turbo's are a 3.7 final drive ratio. a search should clarify whatever you need to know though.

no, you'll need to find an LSD!! i already answered this:
so if i want a limited slip rear diff i'll need to find a rx or turbo xt drive line?
the only model that always has an LSD is an RX - all the rest could go either way.
do a search for more LSD rear diff information, this place is loaded with information and options. EJ LSD's are easier to find, but they aren't typically clutch type (they are viscous) VLSD and not as beneficial in offroad/snow. so depends what you want it for too. racing or messy driving?
