1979-1993 & 94 Conv
I don't think I have ever seen cam sprockets worn out on the 84-94 16V engine so I wouldn't replace them in the first place.
Also, it is not the cam sprockets fault but the one tightening the bolt to spec.
Most likely the bolt was not tight enough.
No modern engines use a dowel pin or keys anymore but only rely on clamping force from the bolt. So technically, that key is only there to line up the sprocket during installation.
