This catalog has GM compressors so if you are tired of no-name Communist China, including 4 Seizeons who now sells made in Communist China compressors under their name, here is a same ballpark priced compressor.

I ordered direct from store.sanden.com for my Dodge and it arrived with *GASP* Made IN USA on the box and compressor. So it wasn't just the box Made IN USA. No link to store due to vendors who sell compressors. Sanden is OEM for my year Dodge.

I've got a 2 year old one sitting on my shelf that leaks. The shop I bought it from has a STACK of them(ALL are 96-02 GM replacements) that all started leaking after 2 years. Replaced it with a GPD 6 years ago, haven't had a problem since. You couldn't pay me to put another of those SANDEN GM replacements on mine.

Every single one of them lost shaft seals. The shop tried resealing a few of them, but he said he couldn't get a replacement seal to last for more than 3 months. He switched to GPD and hasn't warrantied one yet he said a couple of years ago when I last talked to him.
