Default Shimming Stock LSD

Has anyone over shimmed the factory cone type differential or is the carrier not easily split-able?

My LSD is shot, one wheel peel in the rain is out of control with TCS turned off. Car has 144k, so it's not a huge surprise that the stock LSD is worn out. I've just been living with it, since it's just a fun daily driver that I occasionally autocross.

In the last week or so my clutch has started to slip. I'd like to address the diff while the transmission is out. If I had $1450 sitting around it would be going to a lift and transmission jack to make the clutch job easier, not to a quaife or OSG for a ten year old car.

I've shimmed the diff 3 or 4 times on my trans am with a borg warner 9-bolt:
Not exactly rocket science, just add shims until all free play is gone on the spider gears. Of course access is a lot easier on a solid axle.
