360* thurst bearing?

I'm planning on doing a compress wheel on my stock gtp38
I was thinking while I'm there, just do a rebuild
Where could I find a good kit? I'm planning on pulling the whole turbo out of the truck

I seen a couple kits with a 270* or 360* thrust bearing
What's the pro and cons of either one? Or does it even matter

I put a 360 kit in my stock turbo last year. Can't comment if its better but I definitely felt the parts were higher quality than the stock components. The small details like beveled edges on the journal bearing holes etc.
