Check to be sure the hose isn't kinked somewhere below the faucet. If there aren't any kinks there is likely debris stuck behind the nozle screen, remove it and clean it- or your handle mechanism is broken. Replacement handles and hoses are fairly inexpensive if you need one they're easy to find at most big hardware stores or on Amazon
Do you have similar problems anywhere in your house,dose this occur when another water source is turned on,if not then a small pressure tank can be installed to regulate and stabilize the water flow at faucet,if you need further assistance re-post giving more detail about exactly what is accruing.

No the length doesn't matter. When you turn the faucet on, you also fill the hose to the sprayer, and it may expand slightly, causing the sprayer to move a little. Is the drip from the end of the spout at the aearator? or is it around the faucet lever. If it is the lever, you should be able to tighten it slightly. If it's the end, make sure your aearator is clean.
Fix a kohler faucet
most likely the gasket broke inside the lever, you have to replace it.
shut the water off from the angle stop (valve under the sink) both hot and cold.
use an allen wrench ("L" wrench) to remove the tiny screw around the lever, >>>>before you do that place a rag covering the drain for if you drop it<<<<
after that pull the lever out, that will show the inside of the faucet.
use an adjustable wrench to remove the actuator from the base.
when you get that part out you should be able to see the damage to the gasket. At that point you need a phillips screwdriver to get the gasket out and back in >>>>take the damaged gasket to the hardware store<<<< and get a replacement you may have to change more than one.
after you get all the gaskets in place, reinsert the actuator and don't forget to tight it up with the adjustable wrench.
center it so it would dispense the same amount of hot and cold water, replace the lever
reinsert the tiny screw with the "L" wrench.
turn on water from angle valves and test faucet.
that should do it and save you about 300 bucks

Turn off your water supply to the sink the disconnect the supply lines to the faucet. Reconnect supply lines making sure to use plumbers pipe joint compound of teflon tape. I've found teflon tape to be better. When installing the supply lines make sure that the threads aren't crossed and the retaining nut is snug.
