AC is shot.. any suggestions as to what kind of compressor to get?

my ac has been on and off for a while now, and yesterday it finally just went out for good.. i searched new compressors on ebay and they range from $160-240..

any advice on what i should do?

i asked a guy at the local shop and he checked in his computer and he was looking at a new ac compressor and it was around $550

I've checked O'Reilly Auto a while back and found them for about $200 but can't remember it if was new or refurb.

Just did a quick search on O'Reilly for an 03 F350 7.3L, assuming from your sig. here is the link that come up

List: Search for 'a/c compressor' | O'Reilly Auto Parts

If the link doesnt work then must be based on cookies on my PC along with my account info. Just go to O'Reilly and do a search based on your vehicle. www.oreillyauto.com - but the two brands that are coming up are Murray and Motorcraft

so would motorcraft be better then the murray compressor? I just want to get something that will be durable and not burn out, like i dont want to get the murray one because its half the price of the other one, and then it not last..

just curious, what compressor do you have ?
