The same thing happened with my hoses, when I looked up under the back I could see the Tee and deteriorated hoses dangling, I am pretty sure being so exposed to the elements helps them deteriorate.
I am pretty sure GM put it back there because it is a bit loud, yours may be in another location, but I am pretty sure it is up under the rear like mine.
If your compressor does not work I'd not bother to replace it, unless you get lucky and find another compressor in a junk yard, they want too much for the compressor at GM, you are better off converting over to gas struts.
