Mystery 2.5" spring clip - tilt steering

Guys - I have been looking through loose tilt steering posts for the last hour. Not seeing anyone that discuss location of a spring clip about 2.5" long. I have found it in exploded parts catalog views - but the pics do not show where it goes. It is designed to clip over edge of casting on each end.

Jeep is 90 model Wrangler Islander, 6 cyl, 5 speed with 30k miles. Suffering from the loose torx bolts on steering. Just need to identify spring to finish the job.

Thanks!
JT

Clip

Can you provide picture? in the parts catolog, were you able to id the part and reference what the"engineers" called it? Also check just jeeps.com service manual for steering wheels/columns for illustrations;

Resolved - bad is, looked so long to figure it out I misplaced the clip..... LOL Went to dealership today and it is no longer available. You have to buy the entire tilt knuckle. One tech in dealership remember what it was. It is part of the key in ignition warning system.

So all is good - will reassemble without it.
