rear disc brake conversion

Building a 32 3W coupe. Running a Ford 9in with Ford drum brakes. The axles have the GM bolt pattern(5on4 3/4). Why?? Hell if I know. That's the way it came. My brake drums were hogged out to fit that bolt pattern. I get a thumping sound when I drive the car that I don't get when it is on jack stands. I'm thinking it's those brake drums sliding on the bolts when the weight of the car is on the ground. Can I retrofit either GM brake drums or convert to disc brakes without changing the axles?
