Default 2004 Cavalier: Tilt wheel will not lock

The tilt on the steering column will not lock. It is grinding and will move up and down(and side to side about 1 inch) but the main spring keeps pushing back up. That would be fine but when I make a turn, the steering wheel goes all over the place. Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Randel
