The LIQUID LINE drier should be replaced when replacing a coil.

Its just good practice to replace the liquid line dryer whenever the system is broken open.

Agreed with all of the above. The exceptions being if they had dry nitrogen flowing through the lines while the system was open or if the drier in in the condensing unit. In that case no moisture can get in so the drier would not need replaced.

suction driers in my opinion are useless... unless you have had a bad burn you dont need one.... also a suction filter is not ment to be left in the sytem .They are to clean up acid and once they do there job they should be removed ......

Ok so you dont think theres a chance of whatever took the coil out being sucked back through the system into the condensor?
