    From the Raybestos web site, I got fronts as 176 and rears as 158. Fronts for a V-8 have to have those relined or buy from a vendor. (V-8 rear is same as six front.)

      My info concurs with Nate's. 158s on the rear. In fact, my book doesn't show 173 used on ANY Studebaker back thru the 1940s.[}]
