That thing is almost toast. Pull it and take it apart and get a look at the bearings and where the bearings sit. See if the scoring on where they sit is really bad and if it is, rebuilding it is out of the equation. How many miles on it?

Agree with hydro. But you need to pull it. Doesn't take long to get out, just a pain to get in. When you do that, the rear turbo bolt will leave you kicking. Get a stripped bolt kid and just pull it with that. Get the turbo rebuild kit and install kit. Shouldn't run you more than 130 bucks rather than 1700 on a turbo (assuming you won't go with an OEM and an upgraded KC turbo like any sane person would do). But you will need to examine where the bearings sit to even see if the rebuild will be worth it. FWIW, my shaft has no play whatsoever.
