Default A/C Overhaul in 02 WRX Suggestions/Advice?

Well apparently my a/c woes continue with my suby and I am going to replace all critical components of the a/c. Here is a list of parts I plan on replacing brand new.
1. compressor
2. Condensor with drier
3. Expansion Valve
4. O-rings

Is there anything else I might be missing or should consider? I plan on leaving the a/c lines alone. Thanks.

It really depends on how you system failed. if you are looking to just change all "critical" components, you missed a few. evaporator and expansion valve are critical components too.
now why do you feel you need to change everything?

Well for the third straight summer I had to get the system recharged. Twice to an o-ring leak and the other a leak at the high pressure hose. I replaced the compressor once before even though it was used and now my compressor seems to be going out again. The compressor whines and the clutch on the compressor seizes at times and makes a thumping noise that I can feel in the cabin especially when the weather is hot. I just don't want to replace only the compressor this time around.
