Default 93 SSEi supercharger question

I have a noisy SC in my '93 Bonnie. It'* affecting performance as well. The SC doesn't always kick in fully when I give it some boost. It'* not the harmonic balancer since it was replaced a few months ago. It sounds like the impeller bearing. Everywhere I call, no one is able to repair it. They either have then sent god-knows-where to have them rebuilt, or they suggest buying a new one. Buying a new one is out of the question...

Where would I find the parts necessary to fix it? I live in Ottawa, Ontario Canada. I don't mind having the SC sent for rebuilding, as long as it doesn't cost like 700$


Also, which shocks would you guys recommend for this car? Mine seem worn out and I'd like something a bit stiffer.

I'm a Honda guy so all this GM stuff is all new to me

Superchargers are available, I know ebay is one source and another one is Canadian ???supercharger maybe? Willwren will come in and clear that one up.

On shock/struts you should read this and it will give great information as well it would be suggested to change the endlinks on the sway bars while doing a strut change.

Take off your SC belt and turn your pulley back and forth by hand. Does it wobble? It'* probably a worn coupler. Do that, and start a new topic with those results in the Forced Induction Forum.

Continue your shocks/struts discussion here.

The pulley was checked for wobble before the SC belt was replaced. It'* solid.

Not wobble. Backlash. Big difference.

Please post your Supercharger issues in the Forced Induction Forum to keep it seperate from general Mechanical.
