Rebuild turbo when installing ww2 or not

Simple question, wondering everyone's thoughts
I'm installing a non-ebpv pedestal n housing with a ww2 soon and am wondering if I should spend another 100 on the rebuild kit with 360 thrust

My truck has over 136k miles and the turbo has no play in it

I've read where some ppl reference the need to balance it after rebuilding so you shouldn't do it yourself whereas I've also seen forum members rebuild it thereself as well

Thoughts... Have any of you all built yours

I did the exact thing not too long ago. I went ahead and rebuilt it with the 360* thrust bearing. Only about 1500 miles after rebuild so far but doing well. Ive heard the 360 thrust will help turbo lifespan, especially since you will see higher boost pressures after the wheel than the stock turbo was designed for.
And it was cool to learn about all the innards of it. Not a bad job at all.

I would rebuild it. It only takes an extra hour of time and I had a noticeable difference after installing the 360 kit.

What about adding a bigger housing? I'm thinking of a bigger housing, WW2, and deleting the EBPV.
