I am considering mounting a Swarovski with a 56mm objective to a remington 700 SPS. What ring height should I use to get it the closest to the barrel?

This is what I would choose, I think... There are a lot of very good mounting options out there. TPS has a really good "bang for the buck", but sometimes they are hard to find in-stock. If going for a one piece base I would definetly choose a picatinney over weaver.
 If you are looking for a cleaner less bulky mounts, you could also use these.

Warne has a good line of 1pc 20MOA 1913 style bases, also check badger ord. or nightforce for rings, these are all great products.
