New starter

So today I go downstairs to my car and attempt to start her to head to work. I turn my key and nothing. Well I heard the 3 clicks and the fuel pump priming, but no crank whatsoever. I turn the headlights on and off and listen to the radio for a second and it appears my battery is fine.

Anywho, I'm looking for a new starter. OEM cost a little too much for me right now, so anyone know of a good after market starter? I've had some bad luck with aftermarket ignition parts so I'm just looking for a little insight. Thx ^o^.

Re: New starter

New starter is in a works like a charm. I got it from Autozone for $87 after tax with the trade in of my own of course. Installing it was pretty much a breeze, I've heard you have to go under the car so I lifted her up, but needless to say it was unnecessary. Thanks for all the responses. <3

Unfortunately no. I've narrowed it down to improper air/fuel ratio. I'm not sure of the exact cause, but I'm leaning on it being my FPR. I'll be changing that out when I get the proper funds. I'm also gonna replace my fuel filter.
