Turbo rebuild kit?

My truck has a little over 205,000 miles and I want to put the gen 2 ww on. I was thinking it wouldn't be a bad idea to rebuild my turbo since I had it off. My question is, what rebuild kit should I go with? Dieselsite and RiffRaff have kits with 270 degree replacement bearings while a couple of companies on eBay have kits with 360 bearings. I like the idea of the eBay kits because they come with new o-rings and seals. What kit do you think would be best? Thanks in advance.

It's best to take it and get it built at reputable turbo shop that way they can re-balance the shaft with your new wheel on it. 360 thrust bearings are better but beware of what you buy on eBay.

I bought the 360 kit from Barder turbo and a WW2 from Diesel Site about a month ago. Got the Ford HD truck dealer to install them here in town. Labor was about $400 and I had almost $350 in the rest so for $750 I have something that I know is worth a crap instead of buying a stock reman turbo. For the money it does great but still is nothing like a 38R for low end power even with stock injectors.

unless you have lots of shaft play just get the new wheel and change out the pedestal orings.

Thanks for the responses. I found some videos on YouTube and the rebuild does not look that hard so I'm going to do that myself using the dieselsite rebuild kit. I found a local turbo rebuilding shop that i will be taking the shaft and wheel to to have have balanced.
