Aftermarket? Not terribly many options. But anything that will work for a T-type R160 rear diff will work.

Subaru had a few OE, but most were viscous type. They work decently, but not as aggressively as the old clutch type or ratchet-and-pawl "lockers". Some early R160 were clutch type, some R180s had a Torsen type diff.

Easiest/quickest option is to find a viscous R160 with matching final drive ratio and bolt it in. 1997+ rear diffs will have the correct pinion flange and axle-type. Some OB, LGT and WRX from the late 90s to mid 2000s will have them. Some are more rare than others, in terms of ring and pinion ratio.

First 32-bit, 207-swapped OBXT?

What would be the best way to find out my Gear ratio to my car and then find a matching gear ratio to the new differential that I will get for my car

Also could I just get the viscous differential and then install it into my differential housing with my gears just to make it more simple for finding the part

I'm assuming you checked and found that yours doesn't already have one?

When i got my '99, i was wanting to add one. I was very surprised to find it came from the factory with one and it still works great.
