If you’re working with a first or second-generation Commodore, you will find that a factory LS AC compressor will foul on the driver side rail. You’ll need something much more compact, and that’s where the low mount 4-RIB A/C Compressor Bracket comes in. The AC Compressor Relocation Bracket is suitable for VC, VB, VH, VK, VL, VN, VP, VR, VS and VG Commodores, this compressor is compact, and the ideal size for your vehicle.

It’s not just functional, but also stylish. The 4-RIB A/C Compressor Bracket looks much better than a high mount compressor might, giving the engine a compact and more balanced look. The LS3 AC compressor relocation bracket, backed by the highest quality CNC machined billet aluminium construction, matches performance with a truly leading standard of aesthetics, adding a level of polish to your project that will be the envy of other car enthusiasts. It’s also worth noting that compressors used post-LS1 are variable displacement compressors, and those aren’t compatible with older AC systems that use a thermal expansion valve. This bracket uses a Sanden 7176 compressor, which is compatible with systems that employ a thermal expansion (a TX valve).
