Welcome to the site steve49pont. To get the most out of the site check out the Knowledge Base and use the search function for quick answers to your questions. As well check out the Project Journals for info and inspiration. Glad to have you here and enjoy the site

Take a look at these power steering threads I found when using the search function. They are for Chevy's but I think they will work for you.

Not sure about disc brakes. You can check out the Knowledge Base to see if there is something there for you:

Sadly, the best frame for your 49 Pontiac is a 49 Pontiac frame.
You just need to upgrade the front suspension and get disc brakes and power steering when you do it ...

All lot of folks use a front clip grafted to their present chassis. Others use a after market front cross member and adapt later A arms and such. It is up to you to decide the best route for you ... because only you know how capable you are to do this and how much money you are able to commit to the project ... but ..
