Strange noise with new starter on 1993 ZJ

Hi there!
I just changed the starter on my zj. it does starts now, but it makes a grinding sound while starting the car. Is it because i used a cheap aftermarket starter?, or did i messed up something at the installation (if it is possible)?.
The old starter looked fine, good teeth, just died by old i guess.
Any ideas what would be?
thanks!

Was there shims on the old starter? You may need to shim the new starter. Google has a few good links about it. And the new starter could be bad.

Update: i have done nothing to the starter, and 6 months later there is very little sound. Near to oem starter sound.
