yes you can replace the knuckles. this will give you more reliability for your bearings.
Don't waste your time on the d30 swap. It's weaker everywhere. you will get better performance keeping your d35 and installing d44 knuckles, with a locker or LS. Way cheaper route.
There is a reason the d30 was free.

Keep that axle though and use it to make a really cool crawler for you kids out of like a civic or celica or something.

You need 4.56 for 33s. that's why you wanted more.
