AC compressor - clutch seems to be locking upmaking noise can only the clutch be replaced or does the entire Compressor need to be replaced?

If the AC pulley is locking up when the ac compressor clutch engages, it's not a clutch problem, it's a compressor problem. But yes, the AC clutch can usually be replaced separately. The problem is, if the clutch is worn out the compressor is probably worn out as well. It usually isn't that much more to replace the whole thing.

How difficult is it to replace a ac compressor on a 96 Tahoe 2wd?

Well the compressor is not hard, I think (without looking at it) it is like 4 bolts, and a couple of connections. The problem is that most good A/C guys will tell you to replace most of the system at once or when you replace the compressor, you will have to replace most of the parts, one after the other, and perhaps eventually replace the compressor again not to far out... From what I understand... the compressor tears parts up inside, and sends them through the lines to the other parts, eventually eating each of them up.

On my 87'toyota truck the pulley on the ac compressor it smoking bad and making a knock how do you know weither to replace the clutch or the compressor or both or is that even the problem?

Sounds like the compressor is shot and it would be best to replace both. Unfortunately when the compressor goes bad it sends metal trash throughout the system. If you replace the compressor with out having the system flushed clean (which is almost impossible to do) the trash in the system will eventually destroy the new compressor.
