When trying to start just get a clicking,is this got a seperate solenoid

The starter solenoid is on the starter it,s self and that is likely what you need to replace,or the connection from the starter field wire to the bottom post has come loose and just needs to be tightened.

I would like to know how I can replace the starter in my 1991 GMC Safari van step by step instrutions would be very helpful.

Disconnect your negetive battery cable at the battery,Under the passenger side front of your van right rear side of the engine is where the starter is located at.Remove the 2 big bolts holding starter to the block(hold onto the starter as you remove the last bolt so starter doesn't fall and rip wires)Then lower starter enough to access the battery feed wire and the solenoid wire(small wire for the solenoid supply) The big bolts are either 15mm or 9/16 the battery supply wire at the solenoid is usually 13mm and the small wire is usually 5/16 reverse the pro ceedure to install.

Just as a precaution, have the front suspension checked. It is most likely that the front wheels need to be balanced. Double check for abnormalities such as bubbles and seperation of the tread. Usually though if the tires were seperated, they would make an appearance at low speeds. Good news! Also if the shocks have not been replaced in the last few years, it would be very advisable. It will aslo help with tire wear.

Front weal shaking

not much to go on here, but heres my thoughts.
1. you have have a front tire with tread seperation. sometimes you can see or feel it by looking at the tire tread. sometimes you can't see seperation only feel it in the steering wheel.
2. does it shake at certain speed? if so what speed? anything over 45 mph its possible the tires need to be rebalanced.
3. does this shaking happen when depress the brake pedal? if so the front brake rotors are warpped and will need to be inspected. they may need to be replaced or just machined.

A little more information would be helpful.
