      The LSD unit is going to give you better traction in wet and icy/snowy conditions as well as dry traction if you ever race your truck. It doesn't give you any more power, just lets you distribute the power to both wheels so that you do not spin the tires.

      You would need the OEM limited slip unit that I posted the link to in your thread. The OEM limited slip will work with your factory gears, so the only other part you need is the master install kit.

      Going to a 4.56 on your 4wd would require a lot of fab work because your front ring gear is welded onto the carrier. This means you have to replace your entire front axle and driveshaft with 1 from an 09-11. Then you would have to buy the older 8" gears and install kit. In the end, you are better off just going with just the OEM ZF limited slip in the back and just keeping your current gears.
