Default AP1 AC compressor

My AP1 had low freon and with realizing I ran the AC until my compressor blew. Do I need a new AC condenser or AC evaporator? I already am replacing the compressor, high and low pressure line, and drier.

No, not really, you can clean the condenser(with acetone and compressed air), and it's unlikely for debris to end up in the evaporator, because the drier and expansion valve will block any debris from entering. From the evaporator it's a one way ticket to the compressor via the suction line, so nothing is being forced into it.

The bolt going to the condenser can get soft because it comes in contact with a lot of moisture and oil and refrigerant, it can also seize inside the threads making it hard to remove. The worst case scenario is this happening and you shearing the bolt. If this happens you'll have to drill out the old bolt. But you can't drill straight through you have to leave a little bit of the old bolt.
