I just wanted to ask if anyone else has done this conversion, I', going to be putting a chevy 5 lug rear axle under it and want my fronts to match... Is there a chevy 5 lug drum the same depth and diameter???? Studys are pretty beefy and huge I'm thinking dana 60 big?????? any help would be great!

Drums will be for sale once I yank them off

Are you hot rodding a 1927 Studebaker? If so, I doubt if you are going to find a modern front drum replacement and if you do, those 1927 brakes didn't stop the car real good when the car was new and will be even worse with more power.
