    The scout steering column is the same as a camaro or vega from the same year. The D series travelall is a bit longer, but many of the parts are the same.

    They aren't that hard to find stateside, still some around. When you get home you will be able to find one. On the west coast, there are a few folks that have them. In the east, I don't know, but I would think so. Also a few in between.

    The camaro and vega are the same, but if you have a body lift, some changes are needed. Suspension lifts I don't think are an issue unless you move the steering box.

    Scout steering columns are not that hard to find. It's not a difficult job. Can't help you on where to order it, but I suggest you could buy one from Coonrod's in Grant, CO.

    When you get home, the last thing on your mind will be a steering column installation. When the time comes, it won't be that hard to get done. Hook up with local Scout folks. They will help you find one. I have one in AZ that I can get rid of, but if you live on the east coast, it would be kind of silly to ship it that far. There are local parts still available.
