If you have excessive play in the steering column its usually due to a bad bearing and he is correct , The repair in most cases is to replace the steering column as the bad bearing cause damage to the housing.
If it just a spring then yes your dealer should have the spring and he should be able to install it for you.
Take look at the enclosed diagram in the link below, I thing the spring your referring to it #47 which is the steering column lock spring. Have him look and see if this is the spring hes referring to and if so it will need to come from the dealer. I can advise on the phone in the future as well.https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/104923897/Steering%20col%20May%2031.pdfPlease take a moment to rate my service so I can get credit for my time, the question remains open for follow up even after doing so, all you need to do is return to this question if need be.Thank you again.
