GTP38R rebuild?

well im out of town and let my friend borrow my truck,he called me up and said my turbo looks like it got too much play in it and it has scraped the housing a little.i now it has always had some play in it and it never bothered me but i have never noticed the scraping

is this something to worry about, can it be rebuilt if it is blown up

i bought it new in PA and didnt bother to keep the receipt

thanks for the help

Bearings are probably shot there is a thread on here how to rebuild your turbo. Assuming the impeller didn't damage the housing

I thought it was your stock turbo but the 38r apparently is not. From what I've read there really expensive to rebuild

yea i paid over 2,000 for this stupid thing 50,000 miles ago,and now its lookin like i have to buy a new one that sucks

is there a cheaper alternative to this thing i really dont want to spend what i did again but maybe something that will last,give more or equal performance,and be easily rebuilt

again im just trying to figure out what to do if it is blown and have in and out play
