I finally got most things on my Tahoe working but now my starter is not lining up to my flywheel properly, is there any way to adjust or shim it?

The starter bolts go directly into the engine block,. there is no starter mount to distort. They do sell shims, but this is just to space the bendix away from the flexplate if it is too tight. You might try new bolts, possibly have a bent one and most parts stores sell replacement starter bolts in the "Help" section.

99 saturn will not crank after installing a new starter

you may need a shim between your starter and the block. Most starters are ok, but some need shims so that the teeth on starter line up with teeth on flywheel. Starter is probably jammed

Starter is under truck about few feet from front on passenger side. Bolted into bell housing. Solenoid is on starter. Follow positive battery cable straight to solenoid. Go in through wheel well or go under truck. Easy to spot.

Won't start, cleaned battery terminals, batt

Most likely it's either your selenoid or your starter. But before you buy one, have someone turn the key tro crank position while you tap the selenoid with the hammer. If it starts, you have a bad starter.
