OK fellas help me out on this one!

I have a 2000 F250 7.3 with 215,000mi. Lately when i shut her down, i have noticed a sound from the turbo witch sounds like the compressor blades slightly rubbing the housing as it spools down. Do i need to rebuild it before it gets to bad? What kind of turbo is on it or how can i find out? Where can i find a good rebuild kit for it? Should i go with a wicked wheel instead of a stock compressor wheel? I hear alot about them. Don't have lots of money to buy a super new turbo so i am going to stick with my backyard mechanic ability and fix her myself. Thanks

Spubar44, take your intake tube off, grab the turbo wheel, and give it a tug, shake it around and see if it moves much. If you have questions as to what your looking for give us a call and we can better explain it to you over the phone.
Has your boost decreased, or EGTs gone up? Yes you can rebuild it inexpensively.

O.K. this is what i found. in and out the wheel has no play side to side it does. I can spin the wheel and it spins fine without and hesitation. But if i push to one side and try to turn it, it hits the housing and doesn't want to turn. So what now? I am going on a road trip next month and would like to try and correct this problem as soon as i can, if you can help me out, Thanks
