50 merc front suspension swap?

Have a 50 merc with fatman front suspension but problem is that it is all manual brakes/steering. Looking to make a more driveable setup with power steering/brakes. Seeing as I just got the car I am trying to understand the current setup which I understand to be all manual fatman front suspension with dropped spindles & disc brake kit from ford truck. Where do I begin to understand/know what I need to get power steering & brakes in this car? Any help is appreciated.

Do a search...
I found this easily on the internet by typing in "fatman suspension".
Pg. 18 has a bunch of stuff and you could call and ask them how much to upgrade.
