What have you guys, who have converted to manual transmission, done with your steering column for the key release. I havn't done anything so if I shut the car off the steering wheel locks. I tend not to shut the car off at 70 mph so it's not a major concern but I would I'd like have a key release that comes on column with manual transmissions. I want to keep the tilt steering so getting a column from an A body isn't an option for me. I appreciate any suggestions you guys may have.....:)

I found a few on carpart.com, they are 2000, 2001 and 2002 and they are all tilt so do you know is that version the same length os the G body. One of them is an Izuzu
