I know that the lp and hp gears are not interchangeable but the 2 diff models of HP dana 30 should be correct?
Ring and pinions are not interchangeable. Once they leave the factory, they are matched set and must be used together. Using one pinion with another ring gear is not recommended at all.
You can swap both ring and pinion from on axle to another (assuming they're both HP or LP) but not just the ring gear or just the pinion.
Just to clarify, you are talking about the ring and pinion and not the spider gears correct?
