I know several places in town that are rebuilders/specialists/parts vendors all in one. You can get a rebuild from them, they will rebuild yours, or they will sell you the parts. The parts are usually at a wholesale price also as many repair shops come to them for items. I am sure if you search your local area you can find a similar place.
The starter in my Lexus went out but it was merely the contacts in the solenoid. The rebuilt starter was several hundred dollars....the parts to fix my problem were around $7.
