My $0.02, if you have the turbo off to replace the housing you might just want to get it rebuilt at the same time. You can put the ATS housing on without removing the turbo, I and many others on here have. There is plenty of room. On the other hand getting the turbo out the first time will take a couple hours. Once you get the hang of it you can probably remove it in about a half hour.
When I did the ATS housing, my turbo lasted about another 2,000 miles before it decided that the rear oil seal was finished. When I removed the factory turbo it had no end play and all seemed well. You can't check the oil seal condition without replacing them, so you're guessing that they are good. Instead of rebuilding mine I replaced the entire unit with an aftermarket turbo and sold the ATS housing.
