question before axle swap(gearing)

im planning on doing a dana 60 swap. my front ratio is 3.54 (says on the sticker on the front axle) and the metal tag attached to the rear diff is stamped 3.55. what am i to be looking for a 3.54 d60 or 3.55 d60 for the front? i would like to get the axle with the gearing correct, but if i cant then i can just get the correct gearing. but which axle should i be looking for and cheap!!

3.54 and 3.55 are a match set. As long as it is within 0.02 the other ratio u are good. If it is offroad only you can go as much as 0.10.

4.10 to 3.55s best mod
