Correct rebuild kit for a-6 compressor

I'm pretty sure the shaft seal on my A-6 compressor is leaking. I want to replace the shaft seal and any other seals that should be replaced while doing the compressor rebuild. Which of the following shaft seal kits should I use?

Other than the shaft seal kit, what other seals do I need? I came across this seal kit for the A6 as well:

Is it recommended to replace all the seals in the rebuild kit, or if I know the shaft seal is only leaking, should I replace just it?

Those should work and I would just replace the shaft seal if that is all that is leaking. Might check this thread also, GM Shaft Seals.
