You will have to have the ignition cylinder replaced in the car. The only thing that keeps that ignition from turning is a little tang on the sdie of it. The only way that tang moves is by the tumblers inside the cylinder moving it. They will have a hard time replacing it too as they can't remove the cylinder from the bore until it is in the "run" position. Obviously there are ways to get them out but it usually involves using half the tools of a good tech's toolbox. if it is towed the towtruck driver will have to use dolly wheels or remove the shifter cable at the transmission to get it to move as it will be stuck in park- unless is a standard shift.
I am sorry for the bad news. Get a second opinion from somebody that can put their hands on it , but it sounds like you have a tried all or most of the tricks.

SOURCE: Squeaking steering column
Parts will get cheaper, that's what will happen. There are alot of companies that make the replacement parts. What you need to do is grease it not WD it. Pull the steering wheel and tighten everything up in there and grease where there's grease, use molygraph, it will last alot longer than WD. WD is a penetrant, not an all purpose lube. Wrong tool for the job.

The passlock needs to be reprogrammed to the key.
PASSKEY LOCKOUT RESET ALL GM CARS 1999 AND UP
1) Put the key in the ignition and turn to the "ON" position. Leave it that way for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes turn the key and take it out. Repeat this process (2) more times (3 times, 30 minutes total) This should reset the PASSKEY system to recognize your key.
After the last time the vehicle should start.
