XW GT option (9"), also XR6, 1 tonne manual XG-H utes (3.45 but close enough, Borg Warner). I'm sure there would be others, but couldn't tell you what.

If you are chasing 3.5 for an XA borg warner, you will need to get small right hand thread gears from an XC-XD ute. Later stuff will have larger bolts and require hemi mods.

You would have to get a hemisphere built. You can use the gears out of said car, but any LSD will be 28 spline axles, and you should have 25 spline. It is not too difficult. Be wary of going so low if you do any highway work. Even 3.45 will see you at 2860rpm plus converter losses, so about 3000-3100 at 100km/h.

You may be hard pressed to get a good second hand unit now, all these things are getting too old. If you can, go for it. Beyond that, shop around for an expert, diffs are not really a back yard job.
