MG MGA - brake rebuild kit

i am rebuilding the hydaulics on my mgmk2 and ordered the kits from moss. the front caliper kits are lockheed which is ok but the rear rebuild kits are from TAIWAN. has anyone had any experience with these seals
are they ok or are they tipical of some of moss' other rubber (very short life span)
tks don

Don,

I have had aftermarket rear brake cylinders installed since 2006. No issues with the brake cylinders, but have had to replace the handbrake boots. The Moss supplied replacements seems to be holding up fine.

tks for your comment jjb but i think i have answered my own question..when i installed the m/c kit from moss the outer seals that go over the piston were slightly too large and prevented the springs from returning the pistons to rest reliably so i had to stay with the old seals which work fine for now
