Default Joints and more Joints

So, Below is a list of stuff I have to get done to my truck, and I am tackling it next weekend, I am planning a 3 or 4 days of work. My questions would be, if you have done any of these, some helpful tips or tricks on these repairs. Also, brand recommendations would be great as well. I am the only owner of this truck and it has 145,000 and it gets worked. It tows around 10K all of the time so i need parts that will hold up. Thank you all!!

~ Both Right and Left Front Axle Joints
~ Both Upper and Lower Ball Joints
~ All 3 U Joints to rear drive shaft
~ Front Crank Seal
~ Both Rear Axle Seals
~ E-brake shoes and tensioner

The other question is the Front Crank seal, now on their inspection they wrote down the left and right axle boots, are they one in the same? Or three different parts. These are why I am looking for the service Manual. I got my liquid wrench ready to go and going to get the parts ordered, just wondering brand, etc.

Wow! That's quite the list of parts. But workin' on vehicles is good work. Enjoy!

I'm having a hard time finding a good service manual online. I may have to go with a Helms or Chilton manual.

Default Yes, and question

Yea,
I have found the 2003 and 2005 manual, but not the 2004.

Questions. they said the front axle seal, both rear axle seals, are there two in the back, and only one in the front?
and the front axle seal, diff from the front axle boot? they marked it on the inspection sheet but not on the estimate for the axle boots.
