Exterior door handles HELP please!!!

Ok starting to get extremely irritated trying to get the outside door handles for my 2001 full doors! I ordered a set from quadratec last week, recieved them out them in and the wedge shaped spike just slid right on through the mount so there was no pressure to hold the handle to the door went right in through! I snt them back to them afraid of having the same issue! So I went to extreme terrain and ordered a set of there's and I recieved them a hour ago and went out to put them in and the wedge took but you pull the handle and door didn't open there is no spring on the release that's built into the handle, so I called omix or rugged ridge and they said it does not come with one and now I'm getting mad! Soooooo, does anyone know where I can buy a set of door handles that I will not have issues with? Has to be someone that has replaced there's I'm going on a week with my doors being apart and now I'm at a loss! Thanks

x3 on MOPAR for these. I went throught the quadratec and both types on rockauto. None of them were the same quality. The quadratec ones broke after about a week (the little coil spring on top that returns the handle after you open it).

They are a PITA to replace and i did it three times, hopefully the factory one will hold up for a while.
