I bought a set off Rock Auto, but I haven't put them in yet, so I don't know if they're any good or not. They appear to be a pretty basic part, though, not much to them.

Good question, I've been trying to track the answer down for a while. I've found people on other sites for other vehicles say that Sealed Power and Felpro are good brands but I am still waiting to see if someone chimes in here. The price for oem seals seems awfully high.....we're talking about Valve Stem seals right?

Here are the ones I got, the VSS126 set at the bottom of the page:

Valve Stem Seals

On the package it says "Viton Valve Stem Seals." $19.70 for a set of 24.

The viton seals are a good choice for any engine on which you are not renewing the guides ti restore the valve-guide clearance, otherwise I like teflon seals on new guides.

Looks like the DNJ seals on rock auto are a good choice as long as they are Viton. It doesnt say anywhere on the website that they are but it looks like they are. Does DNJ list the specs anywhere on these seals? If they are they the same as the OEM exaust selas then i'll be getting them. Thanks for the link above to Engine Builder good info for sure.

On another note has anybody used the below spring compressor
with success? I found one person saying it works but have not been able to confirm it with him yet. Looks pretty slick and is only $74
