Ball Joint Replacement - Plastic Rings on Front Axle?

I'm currently replacing the ball joints on my '01 F-350 4x4. I'm replacing the axle and dust seals while I'm at it, but noticed that there are these plastic "spacers" as well. I don't see any mention of them in the factory service manual, nor do I find anyone mentioning them in any online articles that I've found.

Here's a picture of what I'm talking about. Note the loose ring to the left of the U-joint.



Anybody know the part number? I see that mind have some small cracks and it looks like these should be replaced.

Never mind. I just looked at the new seals and realized the part I'm asking about is a part of the old seal that has broken off.

Hope you are using MOOG serviceable joints, if not, I would sure think twice about it.
