Default compressor for elc

Where can I purchase the compressor for the rear air shocks? It seems that no local parts store has it, even napa and the dealer wants $639!!!!

this is a pic of my pump...it works, but you can hear air leaking from this point thats marked in the photo. I think its a rubber piece thats become hardened over the years. It no longer forms a sealed bond. Is it really rubber thats just very hard, or is it plastic?? thats really my prob, I was under the impression that i needed a new compressor bcuz this couldnt be fixed...any ideas??

as far as i know you can't order any parts separate from the unit itself but if you have a you pull a part down there go in and try to find a 2000-05 lesabre bonneville or park ave from 98-05 they will have the compressor on them as well as most caddy devilles and sevilles
