the turbo is toast: if you have a leak anywhere before or after a turbo, it side loads the bearings and wears them out.

There will be a difference. I wouldn't spend $1400, you can put a new cartridge in it for less if you aren't afraid of taking apart and cleaning the variable vane system. It's pretty easy and it's a good way to save $500

For a stock truck and stock turbo works just fine. I say rebuild and be happy. Save the bucks for other mods.

go with a twin turbo upgrade for 3500$

just kidding you could but yeah it sounds like your barrings might be shot careful that ur head gaskets are wearing or almost blown my barrings started to go right before that happened cause your turbo is working harder burns them out. also if u need a turbo go to a junk yard like a pull apart grab a stock one save a couple hundred dollars. just a suggestion.
