Well you don't have to get a new rear. you could regear your current rear that will cost somewhere around $500 depending on your location. Now finding a rear on ebay with 4.56's is going to cost you a lot more than if you were to regear your current axle. Now if you have a 7.5" axle you may want to get a new rear since that will be pushed to its limits with 4.56 and 35's.
You best bet is to find an 8.8 rear from a junkyard and have someone regear that for you. This will be plenty strong enough for some 35's. If you have the 8.8 already then just regear that.
Do some searching about axles. there are plenty of guys that have regeared and have done axle swaps on this site.
