Need an AC compressor "manifold"

The air conditioner in my V8 Grand Cherokee leaks Freon slowly. It has been determined that the manifold - or piece that connects to the hoses - that bolts to the compressor is warped and leaks even when properly bolted on. This part is no longer available from Jeep. Does anyone know where can I get one? Other vendors? Same part for a different vehicle?

There should be two o-rings between there. I would replace those first, as those are normally responsible for similar leaks.

I think he means this piece. It shows up in the online parts catalog as the AC manifold. Looks like they are still available from Mopar for $360 or so. Other than that it's eBay or the junkyard if you want to replace it. It just needs to be flat though, the o-ring groove is on the compressor side. You could probably lap it with silicon carbide paper on a piece of glass to get it flat enough to seal.

As said, a junkyard is the place if you need a replacement. But try replacing the O-ring first. It's this larger one you get in the typical AC O-ring kits:
