The big issue is if the DISA pin fails, it'll blow the motor. Very similar to the S54 Vanos hub issues in that regard.
I've been told personally to avoid JUST repairing the old unit as I had a similar inquiry. I have no objection to the kit and I'm sure it's made well, but you're repairing an old part. It would be better to spend the $170 for a new DISA + the $80 for the rebuild kit and rebuild it then just paying $80 JUST to rebuild an old, failing, and brittle part.

As I always say, your car!!
