Replaced it today...I paid $300 from CarQuest...took them about 3 hours to bring it from the warehouse which was great ... plenty of time to get the old one out...

Off to bigger things now...Transmission...

I left the truck there while I sourced a new alternator.

Dealer list $950.00
Dealer parts guy wholesale 'hook-up': $752
WOW! At those prices, I was now fully prepared to take the thing apart myself or take it an old alternator shop in town and try my luck.

Anyway, some internet searching led me to novastarparts.com They rebuild alternators and starters in bulk for emergency fleet vehicles and others.

Price CANNOT be beat: $171.45 !!!
I LOVE FOLKS LIKE YOU! WHO WANT TO SHARE WITH THE WHOLE COMMUNITY!!! APPRECIATE THAT YOU WANT TO MAKE SURE EVERYONE GETS SOMETHING ON YOUR BEHALF. THANK'S FOR THOSE INFO!!! KEEP IT UP MY MEN!!!

You're just now figuring that out? Did you even read the thread from beginning to end before posting?

Just replaced mine last weekend and the original post was helpful. I did purchase the fan tool and wrench since I will be replacing my daughters water pump next weekend. It's worth the money to have the right tools, so much less hassle and faster. Purchased my alt. from Bavauto $410.00 after core return.

I think my Bosch reman was around $300 w/ core exchange from Schucks/O'Reilly's a few years back.
