A/C Compressor Blown
Ok guys I have 199 Chevy Silverado.
Compressor clutch won't engage and oil is spraying out of the sides where the pulley is. I am planning on getting a new compressor and dryer.
My question is do I need a new condensor also?

No, there shouldn't be any problem with the condenser. You might be able to get by with just a new compressor seal, & replacing the oil that was lost. The compressor crank seal usually just starts leaking slowly & then gets progressively worse over time. Seals usually don't blow out unless the system was overcharged. Did you have the AC recharged recently?1988 Chevy C-3500 2wd (no pic)
