    Well I finally got my Sanden Ac compressor in the 91 suburban and it is soo quite! Blows very cold too, I would definitely recommend the upgrade if anyone is considering an upgrade, the classic auto air people were very helpful and got right back to me with answers.

    Yes Classic Auto Air is who I used, I guess you could get the sanden from a dealer, get New accumulator tank, hoses, and new air tube, get hoses, fittings and get them crimped. The kit came with two dogleg pieces of metal that bolt to existing pancake compressor mounting bracket. 450AA82B-2959-4218-B340-7F4164F21FD8.jpeg

    The only difference on my install was the stock hoses. They were already new, so it made no sense in getting another set made.

    I just completed a vintage air surefit system in my 85 using the sanden 508 compressor. Here in Arizona when it's 118, it was blowing 45 out the vents. I am impressed.
