Alright, I am rebuilding my turbo. Should I replace the seals and bearings? Would the dealership have those? If not, could I possibly get a website to order them off of? Any other things I should know before taking my turbo off and rebuilding it? Thank you

what exactly is wrong with the turbo that you think it needs a rebuild?

Radial or axial? Do you have the specifications for end play? Also, what are the chances that my turbine is completely fine with the impeller is messed up? I have an impeller ready to put on, I just don't wanna pull the whole thing apart, mostly because I don't have money right now to replace the gaskets and bearings. Eventually I will purchase that rebuild kit...

What were you looking for?
Shaft play as in if you push it in and out. So axial.

I was looking for a gasket for the compressor housing. Thank you, I know turbos are supposed to have a little end play. .001"-.004" maybe? Something around there

If in doubt, have somebody else rebuild it because if you do it wrong and theres some items out of spec, its gonna grenade on you and really take some things out or leave you stranded.
