Default 01 ss replacing ignition switch?

hey guys, i have a 2001 monte ss and here lately its had more problems then a math book. all kinds of electrical trouble to be exact. to name a few of the issues, dash lights constantly flicker, the onboard computer above the rear view goes out or resets, the air conditioner starts about 15 seconds after the car is running, the driver side window fails to work when its above 85 degrees out for whatever reason, and here lately the cars entire electrical system just died going down the road..then came right back up. i have been told that i need to replace the ignition switch, which im about to do..but unsure of what part/parts i need. when i did a search online for ignition switches i find a couple of different units. does anyone have a parts number for the one they used? here are some of the choices from napa auto parts that show the different ignition switches for 01 montes to see what i mean.

it might not apply to you, but i changed the ignition switch on my brothers 97 Taurus a few weeks ago and its basically a small box screwed under the dash at the end of the steering column. If your talking about the actual switch you put the key in, you turn the key to "run" and push in a small ball that's located underneath the key socket on the column and pull out on the key. The entire assembly should come out. Hope this helped.
