It seems to me that alot of stater failed at around 100K. although anyone had a bad stater under 100K.

Think of it as a maintenance item. I'd prefer it slowly go out rather than just quit completely one day.

"Think of it as a maintenance item"

This is true if you think about it. The starter gives plenty of warning before going out, and can almost always be rebuilt.

It was labor intensive but not all that difficult. My job was complicated by an unusual circumstance but the starter itself was just time consuming.

You could just add starter contacts and plunger to the 90k BIG service and just be safe if you haven't already done it by then.

That is exactly why I replaced mine at ~126,000 this past weekend. Seemed like good preventative maintenance. The DIY instructions are pretty darn good and I'm no advanced car mechanic. I figured for ~$30 in parts it's cheap insurance. It took me around 4-5 hours and would have been alot less had I had a second person to help me as suggested by people in the thread!
