Rebuilding Turbo

Alright, I am rebuilding my turbo. Should I replace the seals and bearings? Would the dealership have those? If not, could I possibly get a website to order them off of? Any other things I should know before taking my turbo off and rebuilding it? Thank you

what exactly is wrong with the turbo that you think it needs a rebuild?

Good question, and how do you "rebuild" a turbo without putting 0 dollars in it?!

You are gonna have to spend something to rebuild it. I just rebuild a GM6 turbo the other day and it was pretty easy.

Radial or axial? Do you have the specifications for end play? Also, what are the chances that my turbine is completely fine with the impeller is messed up? I have an impeller ready to put on, I just don't wanna pull the whole thing apart, mostly because I don't have money right now to replace the gaskets and bearings. Eventually I will purchase that rebuild kit...

Will this fit a 95 compressor housing? This is all I can find. Thank you

Edit: nevermind. Found one for my year!
