Cam shaft seal replacement debate.

Should I replace them at 95k on 2003? Did you do it yourself?
It would seem foolish not too, but i am afraid it is not as easy as it sounds.

Also not entirely convinced i should need too, as long as its not leaking.

If they are not leaking, then there really is not much of a reason to replace them. However there is also the school of thought that if you are already replacing the timing belt and water pump, you may as well replace the cam and crank seals in front as well.
