Either of those options is a lot more efficient than fooling with it
myself, but I may be unable to resist...

  I've done two or three.  They aren't that bad but your balance is off.  You 

have to mark the compressor wheel indexed to the shaft before you 
remove it.  Balancing is somewhere between $25 and $40, I just don't 
remember.  I know a guy in Seattle that used to work for ADP and now 
does them independantly.  Good pricing in kits and labor too if you 
don't want to tackle it yourself.  Only real trick is the screwy headed 
bolts behind the compressor wheel.  The rest is easy except for balancing, 
which is still easy, IF you have the fancy machine!
