Easiest fit would be XW/Y, otherwise you start comparing with complete stub swap to XF. Watch the steering arm position/height in comparison to XR, otherwise you'll get bump-steer.
Then just chuck in a complete XF diff. Good idea to use the master cylinder as well

Use xfyou should change the whole assembly that will also get rid of the dreaded falcon squeak

Yeh splinter - using the XF top arm is a real good idea. Must change mine one day.
If using the bottom arm, it should have larger inside bolts, so the X member will need drilling out.
