even cheaper....but while you are in there just replace the piston to be safe.....cheap insurance if you ask me.
When I did mine all I did was the jug and piston rings. Because the piston rings wear to the jug that that are used on it may just be better to start over with a new jug as well. Would reduce some leaking compression (negligable) too if you replace them at the same time. These top end kits usually come with everything in them so it's not a bad idea to just put in the new! I would weigh everything first though and use whatever is lightest with still the right type of machining as in nothing off center if ya know what I mean.
