    Go to the dealership, or a decent body shop supply company? They will probably have to order one though?

    Well I'm still using mine so that's out, but maybe a salvage yard could help you.

    GM part # is 20300149 I believe.....but then you'd have to paint it.

    You can pull that spriing of any GM car pretty much, they all use the same hinges.

    Getting the spring is the easier part. Compressing the spring to get it in there is the harder part. I also noticed some sort of shim on the upper part of the hinge on the driver door. I have never noticed one on any other car.

    You need a door spring removal tool. Here is what it looks like.
