    Default 96 yukon starter issues

    hey gang , newbie here with starter issues, here goes, took old starter out of 96 yukon SLE, no shims involved, new started installed now grinding or not engaging at all, was told by parts store i might need shims. #1 why didnt they come with new starter, #2 how do i know the amount of shim to use w/o taking it off and putting it back on numerous times, p.s i also think i damaged the flywheel teeth, is this hard to replace and how much should i expect to pay, thanx for all your help

    Good price estimater for parts is Its been a while on a starter I think I used to start at 3 and work my way back down from there. Check to make sure the starter is good I stopped buying parts from auto zone after they sold me 3 bad starters.
