AC compressor replacement

(2000 Dodge Ram Van 1500)
in Westhampton Beach, NY on June 15, 2010
How feasible is it to replace my own ac compressor. I am reasonably mechanical and need to know what is most problematic about the repair. I bought a recharge kit, but that was before the bearing on the compressor started whining.

it is very dangerous working with freon. you need to recover all the freon before opening the system. the compressor is tight to acess but is not that difficult. you need to flush the system and replace the dryer as well. the system will need to be evacuated before recharging.
