You say spins, but won't turn over, that is going to be with the starter itself.

ok thats what i was thinking i didnt know if a bad starter would spin at all if it was going out

Starter drive had gone bad, take the starter out and have it rebuilt at a starter and alternator shop if possible, or use it as a core to purchase a remanufactured one at a parts store.
