Those seals are a joke, I noticed those out when I got my 03 in 06, nothing ever came of it. Well that and I couldn't keep them in.
Ball joints: search you tube, there is a REALLY good how-to video, no blah blah blah talking, just wrenching, watch and learn type stuff. You can save time by taking the axle shaft, bearing and hub out as one unit.
If you don't have access to a 20 ton press, take them to a machine shop and pay them to do it. I installed Moog Problem Solvers from Rock Auto for about $200 total.
Putting them back together can be a challenge, my lowers bound before seated and I had to make a tool to hold the ball joint from spinning while cranking on them with my wrench.
It only took a couple of hours for tear down and reassembly, I can't stress enough to search Super Duty ball joint replacement on You Tube first. I'll try to post a link later, it was mucho helpfull'o.
