I use u-cup rings. They're a little more "hearty" than regular orings. And since each one "kinda" provides a double seal, they do well at sweeping the cylinder walls when you extend them... 'cause those bushings (brass OR plastic) don't keep everything out of there. So I assume there's mud in the cylinder up to that point. :)

I change mine every 12 months but I'm sure they would be good for 2 or 3 years. Especially if you have a traditional set-up (unlike mine) where the piston extends downward.
