STEERING COLUMN

1989 Chevrolet Camaro

I have a 1989 Chevy Camaro with a 2.8 V6, manual transmission, with 140,000 miles. I've had to replace the steering column twice, (tilt) because something keeps breaking inside. (Flops around, won't lock in place). I think this might be a common problem because it is next to impossible to find one.I'm told this column fits this year only. Is there a column from another year or car that I can use and fit it for this car? As long as the wiring is the same or close, I can
mechanically get it to work. Please Help!
