I would stay with the factory spring - Smith & Wesson Recoil Spring S&W 3953TSW 3913 3914 3914DAO 3953 3954

Wolff makes a good product but they are more expensive.

You should stick with the factory spring for your gun, it's whats recommended as well as being the cheapest option. I shoot everything from American Eagle to +P defensive loads in my 39xx guns with factory springs. They should be changed out every 5,000 rounds or 5 years, whichever comes first.

Midway usually has them in stock: Smith & Wesson Recoil Spring S&W 3953TSW 3913 3914 3914DAO 3953 3954

The S&W recoil springs are pretty good. The Wolff springs, I think, are a little higher quality. Either way, stick with the factory rating. As for replacement intervals, springs are cheap, firearms are not, so I replace springs in my 9mm S&W pistols every 2500 to 3000 rounds.
