my local shop said they would tear them down clean and replace oil for 100$ same for the rear shock . so its not that expensive .
main tool you will need is a dampener rod holder. if you jsut change the oil you don't get all the crap out that has accumulated at the bottom they should be torn down .
there is a few write up's on this site on how to do all of this .

As far as seals go, it's also very easy and can be done without removing the damper rod, but you will need to make or buy a seal driver. You also might want to just get new bushings if you plan to bang this job out in a day. Otherwise, inspect them, order them if needed, and wait for them to come in.
