cherokee dana 30 swap

I just bought a 2000 tj that was in a wreck,the guy lost control and slid sideways into a guard rail.(on drivers side) I thought that front lca brackets where the only thing bent, but after i cut off the old brackets and welded in new ones and got the axle sitting straight under it again i noticed i got a hell of a camber issuie on the drivers side, the top of the tire is way in, which leads me to beleive i got a bent axle..(yes i checked ball joints,wheel bearings ect..was all tight)
I found a guy that has a bare dana 30 out of a cherokee for a $100 bux..i did a little research and this should be a direct bolt in, but i read that the cherokee dana 30 is a hp..which will requre a new reverse cut gears..or will my gears and locker work in this axle?? i already got a ox locker with 4.56 gears and chromoly shafts,i really want to just swap my stuff in a new axle and be done....will this axle work or do i need to find on from a tj??

Everthing you have in your current axle will work except the gears, I would pick up the HP30 if I was you.
