Rebuilding a starter.

Anyone have any tips on how to rebuild a starter, I am assuming it is the brushes inside the starter motor itself because of slow cranking or just nothing but a click. Or would it be best to just buy a new one considering they are reasonably priced?

Thanks in advance.

is there a local starter/alternator shop in your area? I usually get mine rebuilt from my local guy and he does a great job and is fairly reasonable. Just had alternator rebuilt on my 98 and it costed 85 bucks verses like 140 for a reman at the parts place. He usually builds starters for 60 to 75 bucks. That would be what I would do. The remans at the parts stores are junk from my experiance

I would have gone with rockauto but I needed my Jeep pronto, so I went ahead and bought a remanufactured one with a lifetime warranty for 65 bux considering its maybe a 20 minute job to remove it and another 20 to replace it, if it ever goes bad Im not out any loot just 40 minutes of my time. Thanks for the suggestions.
