damn that sucks...
The only reason you will need to upgrade is if you break it. I don't know about the placement of the carrier bearing on the 1g 7bolt block, but seeing as they have gsx versions that year there are surely half shafts out there for you to get.
Next time you need to replace it you may want to try and locate one off a gsx...or just say you have a gsx at the parts store and it will probably fit. No guarantees though.
