Wanting to replace my cartridge valve faucet with ceramic. Need lever handles too, not knobs.
Not having any success finding, hoping folks here would know of some.

If you mean that you want to replace the valves themselves, two and three handle shower valves are no longer available, since plumbing codes have been requiring pressure/ temperature balancing, which can only be done with a single handle shower valve. (Unless someone has invented a way to do that with separate handles). That also means that repair parts for those two and three handle valves are becoming harder to find.

Dunno about others here, but need the question in much english,
What is a: cartridge valve faucet?
Without knowing that, who knows if ceramic version exists.
Maybe you're replacing current faucet with a ceramic (disc?) faucet, with lever handles ??

American Standard Colony Soft 3 Handle Bath/Shower, Metal Le Chrome - Touch On Kitchen Sink Faucets - Amazon.com

^^^ Has it all, not however, this set is on 8"centers.
What is the distance between (center of) left-hand & right-hand handles?
Also, you'll want to measure distance from the rear of tub wall to surface of tile and compare to dimensions for this or whatever set you choose. Apparently some people have found this particular set has relatively short reach, does not extend far enough for some installations.
Go to manufacturer's website for all the dimensions you may need.
In this case: American Standard Bathroom and Kitchen Fixtures - Toilets, Faucets, Sinks, Tubs, Showers
