If you go with the 4:10s your just wasting gas and your rpms will be too high.

I would go 3.73 with it being a manual. 4.10s are only 200-300 rpms more than 3.73 but not as highway friendly.

With stock gears at about 70- 75mph your at about 2k with 373 you'll be around 2300 rpm and 410s you'll be around 2700 rpm. No ideal for freeway driving. Waste of fuel.

That's why I said 410s not good for daily driving. You'd be doing like 70 on the freeway at about 3k rpms if not more.

Personally I have 3.55s. I have a 5 speed, I like them. But I didn't get to choose what I got.

Easiest way to tell is look for a tag on your differential cover or jack up the rear end with the car in neutral and rotate a tire one turn while counting how many times the driveshaft rotates.

3.27, you can look up gear ratio calculators to verify.
