Yup, but one thing to watch for is to get one with the steering column still connected to the rack and pinion assembly so you know no one has been spinning the steering wheel. Turn the tires straight ahead, or count the revolutions of the steering wheel from full left to full right, then turn it back exactly half way, lock the column with the key, THEN remove it from the car. When you install it into your car, be sure the tires are again straight ahead when you connect the shaft to wherever you disconnected it. There is a wound-up ribbon cable in a plastic housing right under the steering wheel. That is the "clock spring" that makes a solid electrical connection to the air bag. If you turn the steering wheel one complete revolution, then install it, turning to full lock one way or the other will either cause that ribbon cable to become wound too tightly and it will snap, or it will unwind too much, fold over on itself, and crack after doing that numerous times. Most clock springs can only tolerate turning about an additional half a turn beyond what the steering system allows.
It might be smart to lock your old column in the centered position too before you remove it. That way your old clock spring can be used if a replacement is ever needed, and you'll know it is centered.
