what part of the AC has to be repaired if the bearings are bad? not listed here on 1993 Suzuki Sidekick

My car started making a scraping, rattling, faintly screeching noise when running, esp after sitting a while. Diagnosed as bad AC bearings. I just had the AC recharged due to a slow leak, didn't have time or money for leak location/repair. This was a mo. ago. Any possible connection? I can only find estimate for compressor, condensor and evaporator here---all beyond my means. But my only way to get to work!

compressor is the only item that has bearings. no connection to the re charge. if it was overcharged, there is a switch to turn off the compressor.
you will need to replace the compressor.
