Turbo Rebuild kits

Hoping some of the turbo experts can help me out here.Iam rebuilding my 06 turbo and would like to install the rebuild kit with 360 thrust ring.My question is what is the difference in rebuild kits that justifies a price swing from $80 to $180, I dont mind spending more if the kits are better quality.The cheapest kits were on ebay and the price goes up from there. any help would be appreciated

Thanks for the response I looked at the kits on your website wondering if you have noticed any difference in the quality of the kits. Seems like a big price swing from one kit to the next

We have noticed ZERO difference between our kits and actual Garrett rebuild kits. The brass bearings are the same color, shape, finish, etc as the Garrett kit. It is our belief that these are just "non-badged" Garrett kits, but we can't market them as that.
