All the parts are required as the compressor has failed sending debris into the system replacing the compressor with the rest is a waste of money and time.

Could you please use punctuation - your sentence is one long run-on sentence and isn't clear. What do you mean "the compressor has failed sending debris."? And why would replacing the compressor with the rest be a waste of time and money?

Sounds like compressor is locking up making all that weird noises when activated-maybe this is all you need: A/C Flush, Evacuate and Recharge A/C System, R&R w/New A/C Compressor.

Parts internally break away, and go into the other areas of the system. The shop is right in wanting to do the job correctly with all the components.
You can do what you want but the new or other compressor can become contaminated with this debris and fail quickly if you dont follow those instructions.
