I've never seen a kit like that before and I'm skeptical about it. Rebuilding a Garrett BB turbo has traditionally meant buying a new CHRA and swapping your housings over.

I've heard that some of them apparently can be rebuilt.

But I would never, ever, under any circumstances, trust the precision of an ebay kit for parts like that.

This ^^

And wouldn't it still need to be balanced?

They can be rebuilt, but you do not have the tools needed to do it.
