If you want to keep your power steering, you probably already know that many EV conversions use a Toyota MR2 power steering pump.

Here is a very thorough thread on the subject. Lots of info:
Power Steering using Toyota MR2 EHPS pump - DIY Electric Car Forums
3rd generation of MR2 also called Spyder has a single pump assembly combining motor, pump, fluid tank and controller, making it very attractive option for EV community.
Used on eBay seems to be $200-$350.
