Having never pulled a turbo apart before I can only offer general advise
First up I would not do it without a service manual to suet you turbo, Pulling something apart is easy, pulling it apart without damaging anything and getting it back together rite is the hard part.
You may think you have done it rite but there will be little booby traps that will catch you out.
I.E some bolts may need to be removed at different times even if they are all attached to the same thing, compressor/ turbine alignment. Toque settings, I am 90% sure the thing will need to be rebalanced.
Try a google search about rebuilding the turbo you have, could get lucky and find all the information you need.

Yeah I think you are right about the balancing, I think you actually need to machine a special area with extra material designed for balancing. Other than that tho I cant see it being that hard.
I have been reading a lot and some people have actually done it at home without balancing.
