You would be looking for 4.88 minimum if you are looking for a return on the RPM range. I don't think 4.56 is available.

If you do the math you will find that the equivalent to stock gears but with 35's comes out to something like 4.86. The closest gear is 4.88's. With these gears your speedometer, shiftpoints and power should be similar to stock.

Check out this link. It has the different gears and install kits available that you would need and it is a great company.

First be sure to do some research. If I read what you said correctly sounds like you wanted to install them yourself. Do you have the equipment and knowledge to set backlash and check tolerances correctly? Gearing is something alot of people leave for shops or people with lots of experince to do, it is not a simple bolt in but it is possible to do in a garage...
