Yep. The column didn't change much from '92-04, and the same column was used in virtually all Ford/L/M products during that time. The plastic shrouds changed slightly by application, and there were many optional components that appeared & disappeared (key release for stick-shifts, column shifter, brake-shift solenoid for some automatics, cable shifter interlock for floor-shift automatics, tilt lever, various shapes of MFS & steering wheel, radio & HVAC buttons...), but the column underneath it all was essentially the same, and you can strip a loaded column down to its base & then transfer the parts you need onto it.
Most of what you need to know can be found in the captions of this photo album (click it on a computer with a monitor - not a phone):
I like to use the ~'99-02 Navigator column & wheel because it's really easy to add an aftermarket adapter to make the radio buttons control an aftermarket radio.
I chose to fix mine several years ago. Not a job terribly hard, but not easy either. Repairing the tilt column probably a 6 on a scale of 1 to 10. I'm happy I did mine. I just don't feel comfortable using a column out of a 1982 or whatever out of the junk yard rather than just repairing.
Yes, changing the shifter bushings is very easy - you don't really even have to lower the column, if your fingers are dexterous. But that won't fix the sloppy steering wheel. For that, the column has to be removed & disassembled.
