I have similar Model A front end questions

i am getting ready to put together a front end for a 1930 model A i have some questions along that line. what spindles are you running, do you think that the thickness of the drums you have would stick out or in more so then discs. also i am looking a an I Beam front axle and was wondering if the casted ones are any good or should i stick to a forged. if anyone else has some input that would be great
