ordered the belltech shocks. Was able to get the front done this week. I have a 4wd RST 3.0 Diesel. The instructions said 2 spacers, which did just about nothing for lowering. Went to one small spacer for the front. Also installed 24" reps.
Picture with tools is with instructions for 2 spacers.

If anyone is looking to lower their non-air-ride Tahoe, I have an extra set of Belltech springs (Part # 12462). One of the easiest ways to lower these is to swap the front springs to the rear and put these Belltech springs on the front. Brings it down about 2" all around and retains the factory rake of 3/4". I ordered an extra set on accident. They sell for approximately $220 online. I will sell mine for $100 plus shipping if anyone is interested.
Did you end up selling these ?
that looks greattttt how do the bell techs ride and how was your camber alignment?

Any issues with full wheel turning with the spindles any rubbing ?
Yes, turning radius decreased, as well as rubbing but I’m not completely sure where the rubbing was happening be honest with you. Shortly after these photos were taken I put on a set of OEM 22’s and the turning radius improved a lot and I only have rubbing on the passenger side. However the 24’s will go back on soon with hubcentric spacers. Fingers crossed the turning radius and rubbing disappear. But if I have either of the two issues, or both, I’ll investigate and report back. Along with photos since I’ve done more to the truck. So stay tuned!
