Brake caliper rebuild parts

In my preparation for this coming winters major maintenance, I will be doing a complete cleaning/rebuild of both front calipers and the rear caliper. Does anyone have any input on the seals and who to get them from? I see on ebay there are 2 companies offering complete "kits" of seals, BrakeCrafters and Powerhouse out of the UK. Ordering OEM seals from Bike Bandit, Ron Ayers, or anyone similar will be somewhat expensive compared with one of the companies on ebay. Anyone have experience with either of those companies?

On something like a brake caliper or master cylinder I would prefer the OEM parts unless I could determine where they obtained them. Those parts when properly serviced and cared for should last a long, trouble free time. I build a lot of forks each year (as high as 50 sets) and have used inexpensive seals before, and gotten burned for WAY more than I saved when I factored in labor and return shipping.
