Just curious, who are you getting your rebuilt starters from. Some re builders are crap and some are not so bad. In my old truck I went through a bunch of starters until I had an auto electric shop rebuild my old one for me. Lasted ten years (thats when I traded it in on the Jeep). Now I always buy new or even rebuild it myself. Nothing like jumping in first thing in the morning, turn the key and.........Click. Very lonely sound.
