And, if I was going to be doing much highway driving the 3.70s would have to go...but for around town they're ok.
Don;t change the gears. A motor with a cam like that will not be happy with a lower gear. 3.70's are your best gear overall for what you use your car for.
If you want to slow the hwy cruise rpm down a bit go to a taller 28" tire P235-70-15
