Starter: Engine turns over a few then squeels

The other day I turned the key and it started turning the engine over a few revs then started skwakin and squeelin. Let off key, turn again..... few revs just fine as day, then the noise. This is all out of the blue, now it happens every time I start. Sometimes I don't get the starter to turn over at all. Sometimes it it spins up fine, and others it spins fine then squawks.

Cables look good, how do I tell if they are bad? Had the battery tested and it puts out some 780cca.

Had the starter rebuilt, it's a gear reduction. Same problem.

Lights never dim or anything driving wise, so I assume the alternator is good.

The teeth I saw on the flexplate looked good, and looked great when I had the trans out only 1000miles ago.

Any ideas?

Sure it's coming from the starter?

Yo-ho Yo-ho a pirate's life for me.

Positive. Starter/flywheel. Today it's been turning the engine over for like 2 seconds, and right before or right as it goes to fire the starter disengages and squeels for a second, then goes again if I don't let off the key.

Battery cables and posts are new, replaced those yesterday.
