93 Clock Spring Question

So I need a clockspring - nothing works on the steering wheel and airbag light is present.

This is a 93 mustang - from what I understand it is not interchangeable with any other year.

First I'll ask - is anybody making these yet?

My main question since I will have to find a used one: How can I be sure that the unit is rotationally centered when I install it? If I rotate it slowly, will I feel some resistance at each "end". Can I do this without breaking it?

Thanks

the part # is f3zc-14a664-ab for a 93 mustang, you have to buy used, look on ebay, theres a sticker on the clockspring it tells you how to center it

Thanks guys.

Well, no dice at the junkyard last night. The only '93 had a crappy aftermarket steering wheel with no clock spring.

Does anyone know about modifying a new Dorman clock spring to work on a 1993?
