I kind of wished my situation would have reflected a bracket to hold or balance the starter, but the vehicle did not come with one in place. In fact I have gone through several starters and even changed the plate as it too was chewed up. Every replacement starter I get is the small made in Mexico type that burns out fast or the bendix just don't engage properly. I wish I can find an old Delco type. My 89 Chevy pickup is a 5.7, with a 5 speed standard transmission with the starter bolting into the transmission and still does not have a bracket at the other end. I hope I don't end up with the same problem. I think my best bet is to find a delco starter at a junk yard with an offset bolt on pattern and get a bracket that will fit. If that fails I guess the SUV just got to go to the junkyard too. Thanks for all the help.
