    I don't have any experience with this particular part but i have had good experience with autopartswarehouse.com. If they say the part is OEM and will work, i have confidnence it will be fine.

    A1 Cardone is a well known rebuilder. I've used some of their bits for different cars.

    you might be better looking at a local store, however, because if there is any issue it is a damn sight easier to take the part in and hollar at someone than it is to ship it awaqy (and pay the bill) and wait and wait.

    esp for something like starters<G>

    Often I find that Kragens and AutoZone are real similar in price to online places (though i do buy a fair bit at rockauto)
