IIRC ... it's a 3 inch tube.

D35 shouldn't fit it. D35 should be 2.75

Only one way to find out.

No. They won't fit without damage. D44 is around 2.75". D35 is around 2.65". Ford 9" is around 3" and 8.8 is over 3" because it uses THICK tubes around hefty shafts.

Most of this stuff can be easily googled.
