Advice replacing front door lock handleset
My interior door lever of the front door lock handleset (about 20 yrs old handleset) was broken. It is kwikset brand. I had been at HomeDepot and Lowes last weekend to try to get a replacement, but all new door lock handlesets are not compatible with my existing bores on the door. All of them are required to have 5-1/2" apart between door lever' bore to the deadbolt's bore. Mine is only 3-1/2". If I drill a new bore on the door, it will look like number 8 between new and old deadbolt bores.
I would be appreciate if any expert could give me advice to repair or replace door lock handle.
