Is there a way to test this starter in this 4.6 to absolutly confirm this is the problem?

You can do a starter draw test with the starter in place which will tell you how many amps it is drawing under load. You need a special meter for this.
What symptoms are being exhibited?

I have a 1994 Touring Coupe and a factory service manual. After looking at the procedure to replace this starter, I had the dealer do It. ($500.00) You might be able to do it but it sure isn't going to be easy. You might shop this job and get abetter price
