I had the same problem with the driver's door. You can buy the replacement handles at the auto parts store. I followed the instructions in my Haynes manual with some success.

This is a common problem in Chevys. My family has owned several Suburbans & Chevy trucks with the same problem. The issue is not the door handle itself, but the spring that releases the door wears out, causing passengers to pull again and again on the handle because the door is hard to open. You can replace the handle, but without replacing the spring, it will happen again. -
