You can get all parts individually, well most of them, before buying new parts, take both sides aparts, wash everything well with grease cleaner, check your CVA assembly for wear, pin etc, if everything is fine regrease with black grease from thrust race.
If your bearings sounds gritty, you can lift off one or both of the rubber seals by putting a very sharp point on the inner part and the seals and lift them off, making sure not to deform them in the process.
Again wash the inside of bearings and seals, refit one of the seal, add oil (turbine) in bearing, rotate it until nice and smooth then refit the second seal just be pressing it in place gently.
Belt should not rub either way you put it, personally I changed the belts side. my long one is now on the outside (right) from the spur gear so it passes on right of servo saver (looking at car from above) and small one is inside the spur gear assembly, but when you do this you have to swap the differential/spool assembly and fit them the opposite of manual.
hope this helps
