Did your seals have thick grease in them from the manufacturer? If so, clean that crap out and install them dry. The cheapy little plastic install tools are sweet, but you can use a plastic bag just the same if you're careful. Also, don't forget to cross hatch the lower tube with some scotch brite, or fine sandpaper.
