I like Denso. I had bad luck with Four Seasons (twice) and ended up putting a junkyard compressor on her Jeep....still ice cold after two seasons and no leaks.
+1 on a good used OE compressor from the bone yard. I paid $75.00 for mine a few months ago. It's a Mopar OEM Denso off of a 1999 Ram, they gave me a 90 day exchange warranty and so far the compressor still works fine. It cost $75.00, much cheaper than a rebuilt and who knows whether you can really trust the quality of a rebuilt nowadays? Plus the parts stores will hassle you about buying a new drier and providing proof of an AC flush for the warranty on a new or reman compressor.
Too many issues with remanufactured compressors these days - go with new.
I'll even take a first-quality boneyard pull over a reman.
The OE is usually best for "quality that lasts", but pricey.
Protect your investment. Always replace the drier with any major component replacement.
However, sometimes ACDelco and Visteon will sell you the same new unit a dealer sells but at a much lower price.
Now if you have a car that is prone to compressor failure, I am not sure what to do to cure the situation.
