Default A/C condenser brand?

My a/c condenser is leaking out of the beer can looking thing, the dryer I think. Anyway, I'm looking around online and I don't recognize any of these brand names I'm finding. Can any of you recommend a brand?

And am I correct to assume from my searching that the OEM thermostat is the thermostat to get? My car is starting to run a tad warm as of late (199-207 while cruising at 70 in below freezing temps).

Post up the brands you are seeing, and also be sure to check Rockauto.com. I buy at least 90% of my parts for my side jobs there.

Also, Rock auto has a ton of different options and different manufacturers. I'd just recommend looking for the one that has an OE temperature rating, unless you need a higher or lower one for some reason.

oreilly has murray only. the only brand i recognized from rockauto was four seasons. pep boys had only spectra (?)

i've heard of both. i don't know much about either other than that they're at least bigger companies.

murray has a lifetime warranty. i'd get that.

and fuck autozone
