drum to disc conversion

If I did the work myself how much would it cost to convert from drum brakes to disc? If I used ford parts would this void my warrenty?

depends if you are going to use new or used parts, I take you mean ford parts as in buying from ford themselves, as the parts are ford to begin with :D
when i converted mine I sourced from a salvage yard and they cost me 50/$80 for hubs/carriers/cables/discs & pads.
Not sure if this would affect your warranty either, im thinking its just the same as having other car parts replaced
