Default Is this 2554 worth anything?

It has very little shaft play but the bearings make lots of noise.

It's not hardly worth anything...you might as well just throw it into that box you're sending me.

soak the bearings in wd-40 or similar, carbon may the cause...or just replace the bearings yourself for 60 bucks from gpop and have yourself a rebuilt turbo. its really not that hard if you have no damage on the wheels.
