Will a steering box for a 2000-2006 Silverado work on my SUV listed above? Both are 4wd.
Do you
have the same problem?

Most likely it will. However, we need to make sure your Tahoe doesn't have the off road package. It appears with this option it causes the steering gear to have its own part if it has the conventional type steering system. If it has rack and pinion then it appears to work.

I included all the part numbers for your review of the two vehicles. Let me know if you have questions.

My ta hoe is a Z71 so it is the off road package. When looking at them at GM parts online it appeared that it only called out the 2000 Z71 as being different. The part number for the one I found was Delphi re-manufactured listed as below:
Delphi 26058509 and GM original part number 88965789

1999 thru 2007 Chevy 1500 and GMC
Cadillac Escalade 2002 thru 2006
Chevy and GMC Tahoe Yukon 2000 thru 2006
Chevy Suburban 2000 thru 2006

I got this out of Alldata. Normally that is a direct feed from the dealer information but they have been known to mix things up. What I would suggest is actually calling the dealer and have them run the part number per your VIN and see if it is an accepted part. Based on this info, I am not sure I would trust that it will fit until you got a little more confirmation.

You can also give them the part number that you found and have them double check to see what it fits.
