Today my wife called, the '96 Suburban wouldn't crank. Her car is down at my brother's 4 hrs. away (long story). Neighbor took me down. Battery o.k., terminals clean. OK, crawled under and whacked starter with hammer. Started right up. Tomorrow I'm getting a new starter. Thanks to this bunch for that tidbit on a recent thread. I've changed a lot of starters in my time, never tried just bashing one before.
