Brake Caliper Replacement Recommendation

I have to replace the original brake calipers on my 2002 Silverado 2500HP Duramax. I have read horrible stories about rebuilt/re-manufactured OEM parts failing soon after installation. Its a lot of work to replace them so I don't want to go through this. Can someone recommend third party quality replacements? The replacement must meet the minimum specs of the OEM. Keep in mind, I am not looking for performance, just simple replacements just as good or better than the OEM's.

Thanks ahead of time.

There's nothing inferior about New OE calipers.
Flush your brake fluid yearly, consider DOT4.
Keep if fresh and your calipers will last the life of the truck.
