Is there a auto zone or advanced auto near you ? If so I would purchase one from them because I had the same problem with a part from pep boys at on time installed part 3 times like you then got part from auto zone and no problem worked great.

If you don't flush all of the lines and evaporator(s), and replace your condenser (most dodge condensers are parallel and cannot be flushed out. ANy system mufflers or filters must also be replaced.), all of the crud that went into the PAG oil when the first compressor failed will still be there. That will eventually end up in your new parts and cause the system to fail again, and again, and again until you do flush the system and replace anything that cannot be flushed.
