focusontheD 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.

bmylez I'm not sure about Turbonetics, but you can't rebuild Garrett ball bearing turbos. You replace the entire CHRA. Ball bearing turbos are made to last forever unless you get contaminates in the oil, starve them of oil, etc.

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.

I would maybe get a second opinion on the exhaust side bearing; not saying the shop told you wrong but before dropping a couple hundred dollars I'd be sure it was needed.

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

...and I am sorry, I forgot to reply to you and Matt when you asked about this question a few days ago :(
