Disk brakes

I have a 2005 ZX3 SES which comes standard with disk brakes in the frond and drum brakes in the back. I may have been spoiled because before i got my focus, i was sharing my mom's BMW 330i, but i love the feel of have 4-disk brakes on my car. So i wanted to know if the drum brakes could be replaced with disk brakes.... how expensive it is, where to get the brakes how to put em on, should i take it to the dealer/repair shop, etc.

You can replace them but if you do so the fronts will need to be changed as well because the backs will be larger than the front, from ford the svt rear kit is 2500 or so, bat inc has a kit, try to find a wrecked svtf and salvage the parts from that. Look to easily spend over a grand no matter which path you take on doing this, oh your rims will also have to be changed to fit them.
