Yes, that is the bad lock cylinder. I thought it was offset towards the floor..... maybe it's not a Ford LC, but unless the key hole is in the center of the "coin"- I wouldn't chance it.

Order Ebay if you want. Sometimes it's worth it to pay dealer prices, and sometimes it's not. No matter which route you take, you must get the new lock cylinder keyed to your key by a locksmith before installing it. You do not want to install an aftermarket lock cylinder with a different key- it's so much easier/cheaper to use your existing key.
