RockAuto Cam and Crank Seals

I've always tried to stay with Subaru parts for these seals, but..
Anyone using another brand (Gates, Timkin....)with good success?

I just get them at the dealer. They are still under 10 bucks each. They are an item I've not chanced using something other than OEM.
If someone has used something else with long term success I'd love to hear about it - especially if the price is significantly different.

I've had problem with NAPA (not sure which) and Fel-Pro seals seating in EA engines. Granted I've also used plenty of Fel-pro seals in the past as well, but not worth the hassle for a few dollars any more.
I've gotten OEM seals from Rock auto and thepartsbin.com before as well, but I haven't ordered from either in a long time. I get them from the dealer now.
