new final drive gear in honda civic?

Is there a way—without replacing an entire transmission—to swap a final drive gear in a honda civic?

This may highlight my limited understanding of how these things work.

My transmission is in great shape and probably will be for the forseeable future. It seems like something of a waste to pull the whole thing off just to change the final gear ratio.

My civic is a 97 civic dx hatchback and has the same final drive gear as the hx civic. I'd need to go to the older cx/vx to get something used that would get me a taller gear. Can I buy something new?
