Which compressor should I get?

Year: 1999
Make: Nissan
Model: Maxima
Engine Size: 3.0
Refrigerant Type: R134a
Country of Origin: United States

I've gone through 3 compressors in the past 5 years. First one wasn't producing correct pressure. Last 2 both developed body case leaks. One was a 4 seasons from advanced auto and the other was an arctic air I got off ebay. Both were new not remanufactured. Wondering if anyone has a recommendation on which brand I should get for my 99 maxima?

I would order one from the site sponsor (AMA) above. Repeat failures can be derived from poor quality issues, but one must also step back and evaluate install procedure. I would make sure the system is clean "like new" (a warranty requirement), be sure the pad mount is true, and be careful with the mounting torque specs.

Thanks, ordered from sponsor and made sure to torque this one down to spec. Working just fine right now. Hopefully doesn't leak from the case like my last 2.
