I have seen cylinder head websites that say the updated valve seats they use correct the problem of the O.E. valve seats dropping. Is this not true?

Yes but it will be about a 800 dollar fix unless you can put the cylinder head in yourself.

Got it. I just want to be sure that once this repair is completed, it actually repairs the problem and wont have to be worried about anymore.

I've seen mention of an aftermarket cylinder head replacement? What's the benefit with that vs a rebuilt cylinder head with updated valve seats designed to correct the problem? I'm somewhat leery of a non-O.E. cylinder head.
