you can look on the actual differential cases, they have the ratio stamped into the front cover, and sometimes even a plate between two of the bolts on the cover

4.10's on a 4 banger 5 spd. the biggest you can fit in stock axles is 4.88 by an aftermarket company.

you really won't see fifth gear w/ any gears, and 35's w/ that engine. i had a 4 banger, now a 4.0, just go for the bigger motor is my advice.
