how difficult is to remove these, and am I going to need a press to re-install
Manual say's pry out , but I'm not sure that will work they seem to be in there pretty good

Remove ret. clips and work the seal out. No big deal. No press needed to install new pieces....bosheff

You can buy a seal removal tool at any good auto parts store, such as NAPA. Something like this:

Use care when prying on the edge of the fork slider, protecting it from little nicks caused by the edge of the tool.
