Turbo shaft balance?

Hi guys thanks for all the help in the past but I've got another question. I'm planning a turbo rebuild and wheel upgrade, haven't decide on which wheel yet. But any way when I do this do I need to sent the wheel and shaft out to be balanced? Or does it not make a difference with using the stock shaft?

Re: Turbo shaft balance?

The wheel itself will come balanced. No need to have it balanced. Some people do but I look at it like tires. When you get new tires, they get balanced, you don't balanced the axles. Just look everything over good when rebuilding and replace what needs to be fixed.

2003 F-250 CCLB 7.3L
4" lift and PMF traction bar/block setup running 35s on 20x12s. Intake, exhaust, PHP Hydra w/ Gearhead tunes, gauges
2005 F-350 CCLB 6.0L
6" lift on 20x10s and 37s, studded, deleted, Powermax and Livewire with Quicktricks tunes, exhaust, intake (Wife's Truck)
