Question about 1989 Dodge Ram 50
To convert to power steering you'd need to find a power steering pump complete with mounting brackets being older, that may be more difficult than installing them. You'd also need a power steering box. I'm not sure if the pitman arm is different and you might need to change at least the lower part of the steering column to match the box. The high pressure hose is likely still available and return hose is standard fare.
As for the engine miss, check fuel pressure and flow as well as the ignition coil. Make sure your egr valve isn't leaking too. Those are only two ideas...you need to check the cap, rotor, wires, read the plugs to isolate any that aren't burning right (then find out why) as well as a compression test.
Your spark plugs tell you a lot so look at them first.
