Get some front hubs from a 61-68 full size Chevy car, and use the bearings and grease seal for that car. They bolt right up and the stock drums slip right on.

Rick L has the right idea....The hubs are pricey, if bought new though....Might as well go to front disc brakes, if you have to buy them at that price IMHO.
