I was considering just replacing the fuselage again, but if the foam on the wings compresses and fits too loosely in the new fuselage, I might as well just buy a whole new kit?

What is your experience with replacing parts vs. the whole kit? And where is the cheapest place to get parts/kit?

The wings in mine started to slog out too, I wrapped a layer of tape around the inside of fuse where wing locates to tighten it up. That helped to problem for a while.
Otherwise, glue the wings in, it'll be solid then

For the kit, It's only ~$34 at hobbyking when I bought it last (2 months ago), it may come down in price due to the new bixler 2.
