You did mean 48 on the rear right.
I have a shift kit so I was told by SBP to use there 48t front sprocket but when I check it out this is what I find (I dont think this is what I need to get me up my hills?)

For owners of a Shift Kit, this sprocket used in conjunction with your current 44 tooth sprocket and a 9 tooth jackshaft sprocket would keep your overall gearing virtually the same yet allow for better pedal assist for those who like to pedal.
