A basic rebuild kit should include all you need right, like the kits they sell on ebay, or are those kits garbage?

After a good long soak in PB Blaster I would put my turbine housing in a vise and lightly tap the CHRA forward with a mallet, it will start to seperate, then start twisting it untill it breaks free.
