front axle seal question

I did 2 ball joints today.
What do you call the 2 seals that are always worn out and where to get them. I am referring to the 2 that come out with the axle when you pull it out. One goes into the differntial axle shell, the other the back of the wheel bearing. These are dust shields. Is their a proper name? Where can I find them?
thx

Thats where I got mine from.Pretty good prices if you don't buy there tools.If you buy the tools then your paying some money.The one in the end of the housing is a dust seal like you said and they refer to it as an outboard seal.I checked Napa,autozone,and advanced and none of them have that seal.The do have the other though you refered to.

The one that seals the end of the axle tube is just a dust seal. I got it from napa for
$12.99 the other one i think is called a knuckle seal. It was a ford only part that i had to get from the dealer, but it was only $44 per side. I just did balljoints on my truck this morning.

knuckle seal, the one i had to get from ford is part # FORD F81Z-3254-CB
The dust seal is part # FORD F81Z-1S175-HCA or NATIONAL 710413.
Im not sure what the 3rd one you are talking about is.
