Thanks to everybody who's weighed in on this topic. I ended up sending it in to turbonetics.
I was really surprised by how turbonetics treats their customers. They were not very nice. Anyone had similar experience? I know I'm a small customer, but geez they made it sound like I was burdening them.

|focusontheD||Yeah. I did feel the play and it seems like its only on the exhaust side. Hard to tell but the shop's diagnosis makes sense to me.|

We did feel the play oursleves, and there is also some oil in the downpipe, it appears.

|focusontheD||They're not bad after x number of miles. They are bad when you have some slop in the shaft. I was told by a turbo shop that the exhaust side bearing is loose|

|ZXthrizzle05||Why the rebuild? Are turbos no good after x amount of miles?|

I have the same turbo as you!
...and I am sorry, I forgot to reply to you and Matt when you asked about this question a few days ago :(
