I don't know for fact, But I would say 0.015" difference is not a thick ring gear.

My best advise is to call the PO of the new to you set.

I believe the pinion I need is one that doesn't take a crush sleve

If you get a Dana 30 ring and pinion set that's compatible with the CJ version it won't use a crush sleeve.

Seems pretty simple to get the right part to me and cheaper than buying a series of questionable or incorrect parts.

No CJ Dana 30 ever used a crush sleeve if that's what you want to know.
