Some of the preludes in WTC are good for that tho none that I know of specifically targets those fingers. Some of the Inventions too but again none directly aimed at developing those fingers.

You might try the Schmitt exercises or Pischna if you want specific fourth and fifth finger development. Joseffy has some that are designed for that too--well, most exercise books do.

I'm sure others will respond with more specific advice about Bach.

definitly inventions/sinfonias. you would learn a lot from them. but be warned, there are a lot of tough working out there for your fingers, even though it might look simple on sheet.
