swapping open carrier for limited slip?

Before I get to deep in to this project I want to make sure I'm not waisting my time. My rear pinion gear shattered.
I have a Dana 44 axle, currently it is open. I got a hold of a used limited slip carrier. If I rebuild it with new ring and pinion and spider gears will it fit with out swapping out any thing else? If it fits I will be taking it to a professional to have it installed. I don't think I want to touch that.

thank you

it should fit, provided you've got the right part. there were some variations between D44s, so look up the compatibility with the LSD's manufacturer.

to install it is another gear setup...so setting backlash, pinion depth, master install kit, etc.
