I talked to them about the same part and decided to buy the lever because in my SmartWheel work on the high idle issue I became concerned about the lever as well.

I was quoted $27.53 for the lever plus $15 shipping. Don't know what Tojos paid, and assume they will tell you.

I talked to Candy at Douglas about this, and she said part number 9203316 was the number for the entire steering column, and that part was discontinued. She said the part number for the lever by itself was 1900009. She wanted to know if I wanted to buy both the lever and the turn signal switch, which is connected to the lever, was about $135 total, or about $110 for the switch.

I asked her if the lever and the switch were discontinued parts, as was the steering wheel, and she said the lever was discontinued and replaced with a different style, but the switch was still common in their other steering wheels, and not discontinued. So I decided to just buy the lever. Don't know if another of their levers would work as a substitute, but since it's connected to the same switch I'm betting there's a good chance it would.

Candy said while the steering column was discontinued as a part, many of the critical parts, like the switch, were still made and being sold, because they fit more than one steering column.

Bill- thanks for the valuable insight. That the switch is common, and another lever available makes it a comfortable situation for me.

I will note now, that I will treat the lever with more respect in the future. I have changed them on cars before, the Ford Crown Vic LX was a snap, but getting into the area where the lever is, even with the seat back all the way might be a chore, so not having to replace it would be better.
