starter rebuild

i have a 1998 tacoma 3.4 v6 and i believe my starter is going out. sometimes all i get when i trun the key is one click takes some times 5-6 of turning the key it finally cranks. has anyone rebuilt there starter. if so do yall have a write up with pictures.lol i know that you have to replace the plunger and the contacts is there anything else. i know i can get a starter for 100 bucks but probly not as good as the oem starter

i just found this to. i guess the 200 4runner would have the same starter or close to it. i guess all i need to change are the contacts. and just clean up the plunger
