28 spline axles won't fit into a 25 spline centre....the hole where the axles goes is smaller.

If I had some out right now, I would take photos and post them to show you.
The holes in the sides of the 25 slpine centre are TOO SMALL for a 28 spline axle to fit in.
The side bearings are different because of this too......but have the same outer diameter.
An LSD does have side gears....it wouldn't work without them.

OK....I now have pictures to show what I mean. The 28 spline axle won't fit into a 25 spline centre.
In the pictures are a 25 spline 2 pinion LSD ( EA ), a 28 spline 4 pinion single legger ( EBII ), and a 28 spline 4 pinion LSD ( new ED/EF ).
I am building a 28 spline 4 pinion LSD diff, using 3.27 gears, and EBII housing to put into my ED sedan.
