3rd Gen Camaro steering box swap help

I am attempting to swap a 3rd Gen Camaro steering box into my 69 Camaro that was originally a manual steer car. I am having trouble getting the correct rag joint. I purchased a lares 205 from rock auto. It seems to cross with the others people say they are using but it will not bolt to my column. The bolts in the new joint are a lot closer together. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks, I got the dormman 31011 rag joint and it worked perfectly. I guess I didn't think it would because it said it was only 17 spline. Thanks again.
