Turbo side 2 side movement

I have had a new wicked wheel on order for a long time and it should be here soon. I heard some odd noise yesterday coming from the turbo so today when I changed my oil I pulled my intake tube to check my comp wheel. It has some side 2 side movement now.

Question will the movement go away when I install the new wheel!

Im going to say its probably not going to fix it. Think of the turbo like an axle. Bearing in the turbine side and one on the compressor side of the shaft(or axle). If there is play on one side a new wheel wouldnt fix it. It would most likely be a bearing(or hub). A rebuild might be due soon. A good time to do the wicked wheel too!!!

No the ww will not fix your problem. How much play are we talking about.

You really need to measure the movement. Most likely you will have to remove the turbo tear it down and inspect the turbo.

Most likely you will have to rebuild the turbo.

I already have the wicked wheel but now I need to know if I need to do other things, I would love to just buy better turbo but unless someone has a used proformance turbo for cheap (under $300) I am limited in what I can do!
