Default Compatible LSD for an HG43 Axle

Greetings!

I've only had my '93 D21 SE V6 for 3 years, my first Nissan, and have only been "under the hood" to fix broken things. I'm looking to improve it, done some reading, found conflicting info around here. Some of the info here had me convinced I had an LSD diff based on my axle code, but my experience driving and finally jacking it up told me otherwise.

If I were to roam some junk yards and turn some wheels until I found an LSD on a hardbody, which diffs are compatible with my HG43?

I’m pretty sure the LSD from any other “HG” axle will work. That’s the code for the h233b axle. Look for other SE trucks. The 96-97 SE 4 cyl even had them.

As bama said, any "HG" axle with a LSD will work. You used to be able to spot them easily when the sticker was still on the axle, usually on the housing.

Thanks gents! I feel like (and actually am) a total noob with Nissans and 4wds in general.
