I'm leaning towards that as the car has 275K.

They sell an other kit that completely replaces everything on the on the drive side of the vacuum pump; are, pins, bearing and ect. The catch is that if you buy both rebuild kits it will cost almost as much as a new vacuum pump and the new pupm would come with a warranty.
Here is an example of a place that sells the Arm assembly. But some places sell the Arm kit for close to $300.
