They list two different seals, one for about £10 (89 to 93) and one for about £20 (93 to 05).

Ive potentially got a LSD with a leaking seal. I think it was removed from a 93 model. Which seals do I go for?

The changeover in '93 will be a reference to the change from 1.6 to 1.8. The original 1.6 diffs were smaller than the 1.8 version, which presumably explains why the seal changed.

So I presume as its a Torsen off a 1.8 I would need the hopefully cheaper part?

Unless £20 is hopefully cheaper than £10, I can't see how you'd come to that conclusion.

Does it have a rubber damper behind the pinion flange? If so it's a 1.8 and needs the later, more expensive seal. (if it doesn't have a rubber damper, it could either be a 1.6 diff or a 1.8 from an auto, but in that case, it won't be a torsen)

Oops, got confused. So will need the more exspensive seals?

I just bought x2 new OEM mazda diff seals from auto link on eBay for £35 suitable for my Torsen. Also got Titan race gear LSD oil to change the oil with and some super pro diff void fillers from p5 performance. Can't wait to do the swap now.
