Default 94 GT - Key stuck in ignition

I can start the car, but the key is VERY tight like its bound up inside. When starting I can turn to the start position but have to pull back to on manually, because it wont come back on its own. Can only pull key back to the spot where I would normally push in on the key and pull back one more spot to remove. It stops where I would normally push it in, and wont push in at all.

A friend of mine went to help my wife, because she had the car that day. He got key out, lubed it up and it went in and out fine. Once he turned key though couldnt get it back out again. Right now, I am just turning radio off inside car and keeping doors locked. :P Oh and covering ignition area with a towel if I have to park it anywhere unprotected.

I plan on taking it to a locksmith on Monday, and I purchased a very rough steering column from the salvage yard here in Houston. Its rusted pretty bad, but it has a decent looking lock cylinder. However, there is no key for the salvage part.

An online locksmith told me I needed a new updated side bar free lock cylinder, but I cant find any info on that. And like the rest of you, I now know that Ford has discontinued all the Probe parts

Thanks in advance guys
