Most people just replace the 2 fluid seals, and the oil, usually reuse the dust seals and clips

Not always.

I have had mine in for over a year and they are sealing fine.

Enjoy your good fortune......while it lasts

I'm a mechanic at a shop & have a little broader perspective on it. Probably 90% premature failure rate on aftermarket seals where I've seen 10+ year old stock seals in great shape. With the pain in the factor on top of costs involved for having them done....its worth the extra 30 bucks

Depends on the bike and which fork seals you are talking about. But yea, Leakproof seals DO NOT work.
