no! maybe the squeal isn't the starter. pull the serpentine belt and check the bearings on all the pulleys.

it only started squealing right after the starter was put in never before what are the odds that the bearings went bad as soon as the new starter went in

Check the belt tensioner first if the belt isn't tight enough it will squeal. If you turn on the AC and you hear the noise you hear at start up your looking in the right place. However if the starter isn't the correct one for your car it may give off a squeal as it is turning to start. When the starter was rebuilt the rebuilder. may have used the wrong starter drive or the wrong nose piece on the starter not allowing it to align perfectly like it should. Make sure the noise is coming from the starter before you blame it. It may be just the serpentine belt slipping
