I have drum brakes on all 4 wheels, 5 lug. If I go to disk brakes, am I going to have to change front spindles or are there disk brakes that will work with my spindles? My spindles have been gussetted and I really don't want to change them.

Buddy of mine runs drum on his front and disc on the rear. He runs street and woods hard and hasn't had any problems. Only thing is, he does take his front drums off from time to time too clean all the mud and debris out.
