Re-manufactured Ford part or brand new foreign part

My a/c compressor has gone out on me, and im online looking for replacements. In the same price range im seeing remanufactured oem ford compressors and brand new Chinese/Korean aftermarket compressors. Obviously the OEM is the better choice but is remanufactured a reliable option?

Yes. A good Remanufactured OEM is as good as new.

I have a GPD compressor in mine. I think all aftermarket parts come from a single supplier though. It works fine right now but I feel like I have a leak somewhere in the system....

Denso, Visteon, Sanden GPD, etc.. are all fine, just steer clear of four seasons and ANYTHING REMAN! (This applies to AC compressors only).

I have bought new compressors (3) that have been frozen. I guess they have sat so long.
I've talked to people about remans and they swear by them. If you get a good shop to rebuild, they claim they are better than new simply because they can set it perfectly.

I've got one of those brand new sitting on the floor locked up. Maybe when I need it something can be done about that.
