    Like I said at the beggining of the post-getting a part from rockauto aint a big problem-they ship with reasonable shipping cost. But I also stated that atm im bit strapped on funds. I may go dorman for the time being unless somebody has better suggestion-if u click on the link I posted it takes you to rockauto and there are at least 4 or 5 different companies of which 3 I had no experience with. Hence my post. Dorman has mixed reviews even among you guys responding to my thread but other handles rockauto sales are even cheaper so not sure if they're worth the hasle.

    When in doubt, stick with OEM. I'm not sure why you'd want to spend money on the same part twice.

    I haven't had an issue with my chrome Dorman handles on my 98, and I've had them for about two years now. I also always recommend 1A Auto's stuff, from what I've ordered from them, I haven't been disappointed.

    If we're talking the later interior, I was told a long time ago that the aftermarket interior handles are just as bad as the oem.

    I think I went with Dorman and its fine.

    Yes I agree ome really only way to go but for those that can’t just get factory or dealer parts due to price I’m mearly suggested chromed interior door handles like that in my gmt400 Escalade which is a year 2000 officially thee last year of the gmt400 gen! And so looking for that part would be 98-00 as Denali an Escalade had them.

    My passenger door is acting up a bit. When you pull handle, nothing, to then pull again it works. Is it typically the handle assembly or maybe something else inside I should check first? I’m guessing it’s the assembly.

    My drivers side is the exact same way. I figured it needs something lubed up inside.

    I’m original owner 1995 K1500 PU. Replaced driver inside door handle 3 times. First time used genuine GM. Last 2 times used Dorman. No difference in quality between the 2. It is a poorly designed handle and well known failure point for these trucks.

    Make sure your doors are not sagging before you use the handles much.
