My question to way I am going through them so quick the rebuilt one is still in but it is making a bad grinding noise when starting when I changed it, it had two shims are there to be two. Thanks

You will need to shim each starter. Not all starters end up being shimed the same. Easy way to do it is get a steel coat hanger straighten a pc, and you wont it to just fit between fly wheel teeth, and starter teeth. Also check batt connection and grounds. Oil leaks and heat will also kill a starter prematurally.
