 Hi
yes it can be done BUT with a dodge 50 of that age it will most likely have the 20mm thread size ball joints, to upgrade to PAS you need to upgrade the ball joints to 24mm thread size, this is because the PAS will only work with that size, so you would have to change the steering drag link and ball joints and also the arm which comes off the drivers side stub axle.

I did an upgrade for someone last november who had an early dodge like yours, i had to source the extra parts needed, so you would need new 2 ball joints, drag link arm, steering box and mount, pump, piping and reservoir and pully wheel to go on the crank pully wheel for the extra belt.
This is a job best done by someone who has done it before unless you can gather all the bits yourself, I only have half a kit at the moment, got steering box, drag link arm, new ball joints, reservoir and pipes.
