so since i bought my truck it always was hit and miss on firing right up. couple bumps of the starter here and there and it would fire right up, or it would start first try. anyway i was tired of doing this so i orderd up the starter plunger/contact kit from genos garage. shipped all said and done was around 35 bucks. anyway heres some pics of the job, took about 20 min to take the starter out and slap in the new pieces.

Much the same only bigger and you get a new plunger in the kit
The contact disk isn't removable

Deffenatly cheeper than a new one wish more stuff could be rebuilt rather than replaced
