Turbo rebuild

On the way home from work today my turbo started making a high pitch whine, like a not good wine, so i assume all things bad and am going to rebuild it . So i have a few questions 1 which rebuild kit is best. 2 is a wicked wheel 2 worth going to, and 3 how long can this wait I am about a month from doing a oil cooler. Truck runs fine makes good boost still just has a whine in the back ground of the turbo whistle not sure how to explain it i can also hear it in the engine bay at idle . Also if any one has cheep turbo options I am open for suggestions . o ya i drive to work 3 days a week about 40 miles each way rural roads the rest of week truck only gets driven to the store .

I would take the intake tube off front of turbo and check the play. Side to side play is ok as long as it doesn't hit the compressor housing, forward and aft play is no good. If all play checks good then your turbo is fine, I would check the y-pipe bellows, or if you have a egr cooler delete the connection of the delete pipe and up pipe.

A y-pipe leaks or bellows will sound like a loud screech metal noise, like the brake pad worn out tabs hitting the rotor.

Never heard a very squeak out the tail pipe when shutting truck off. I would still check the turbo first for play, then if good go from there.

You need to find out if you have the smaller or larger 2005 turbo (56mm vs 59mm) late 2004- early 2005 can go either way

Here are some links to some rebuild kits with upgraded 360 bearing and some billet wheels
