4.88 I think is the lowest you can go. Have you thought about 33's? As 35's and lower gears don't help the dana 35.

5.38's would be ideal and great with a 4banger and 35's...BUT, the problem exist with your stock D30/D35 axles...which can only go as far as 4.88....nothing lower made for them. Also, Stock D35/w 35''tires...asking for a broken shaft.
